We have reached week nine of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a MAC showdown on Thursday night when the Ball State Cardinals make the trip to Peden Stadium to take on the Ohio Bobcats.
The home team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals didn’t have high expectations coming into this season and it’s a good thing because they are really struggling.
They have won three games on the season but whenever it seems this team has turned the corner, they take a big step back.
The defense really hasn’t been a problem all year but in their last game against Eastern Michigan they gave up 42 points.
On the offensive side of the ball the Cardinals are led by Riley Neal who has thrown for 1841 yards, ten touchdowns, and four interceptions.
In this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. They are facing a good Bobcats offense and they need to try and limit their time of possession.
On the other side of this matchup is the Ohio Bobcats who have played a tough schedule, but they come into this game having won three of the last four games.
The one loss during that stretch was against Northern Illinois because the offense couldn’t get by the tough defense.
The strength of this Bobcats team is on the offensive side of the floor averaging 36.3 points per game. In their last game against Bowling Green they scored 49 points.
The Bobcats use a balanced attack to have their success averaging 247 yards through the air and 208 yards on the ground.
To win this game the Bobcats need to push the pace. If they get this game into a shootout, they should have no issue winning.
