Ball State (4-4) vs. Western Michigan (5-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Western Michigan can’t seem to find its footing. It still has to win one of its last three games to get bowl eligible, and it needs to win out to take the West. It already beat Central Michigan, but it can’t lose at home here.
Ball State has to beat WMU this week and Central Michigan next week to take control of the West. At 4-4, it has to win two of its last four to get bowl eligible.
The Cardinals have lived on the turnover battle. They’re a +6 on the season, lead the MAC with 19 takeaways, and they’re great at capitalizing on their changes. The passing game has been all over the place, but when it’s on, it’s good enough to go off.
But it’s about to deal with the best pass rush in the MAC.
Western Michigan can get into the backfield, and it has the offense that can move the ball however it wants. The biggest issue for Ball State is how WMU doesn’t screw up. It’s great at the turnover battle, too.
The Cardinals won’t be able to own the mistake game, and it won’t have the offense to keep up in the second half.
