As for the Indiana Hoosiers, there season is still perfect as the defense has been stepping it up late in games.
Ball State Cardinals
The upset almost happened for the Ball State Cardinals as they went into Notre Dame with the thought of getting some recognition, and still left with some as they almost came back in the 4th quarter. The Cardinals success in their week 2 loss was the running game as they will make sure they will continue against a Hoosier team that is allowing over 120 rushing yards per game.
In the loss, the ground game was ran by running back James Gilbert as he finished off the night with 72 rushing yards on 19 carries. Right behind him was the quarterback Riley Neal who managed to total 35 rushing yards.
Speaking of the QB, that is where the Cardinals need to improve as Neal has been making mistakes the past two weeks. In the loss against Notre Dame, Neal finished the night with throwing for 280 passing yards along with one touchdown and two interceptions.
The Indiana Hoosiers have yet to be beaten so far this season, but they are getting close from dropping the ball. They started off the season with an easy road opener against the Panthers of FIU with a 38-28 win. However the Hoosiers should not be giving up 28 points to an average team like the Panthers.
The Hoosiers had their toughest game of the season last week against the Cavaliers of Virginia as they managed to score 20 points by halftime and kept the lead with a nice defensive stance.
The Hoosiers have yet to really cover any type of high spread in the past season as the Cardinals are coming off some nice outings themselves. A two touchdown lead might be too large for Indiana.
