Toledo looks to stay in the MAC West race when they welcome in the Ball State Cardinals on Wednesday.
The Cardinals need back to back wins in their final 2 games to become bowl eligibility.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals were poised for the bowl season, but 3 straight losses now have them in extreme danger of missing out on the postseason.
Losses to Akron, Western Michigan, and Eastern Michigan all at home will now force Ball State to win a pair of games on the road. This year, the Cardinals have gone 3-2 SU away from home and 4-1 ATS in that span.
The main blame for the Cardinals struggles as of late comes from the defensive end.
Ball State has given up 35, 52, and 48 points during their 3 game losing streak, which are all above their season averaging of 30.5 points per game.
The Cardinals had a chance to secure a win last week on Senior Day, but the defense couldn’t stop the Eastern Michigan Eagles on the final drive of the game.
It’ll be up to the defense here, as they have to find a way to force some turnovers and slow down one of the best offenses in the MAC.
The Rockets simply need a win here to set themselves up for a showdown against Western Michigan next week for the MAC West Title.
Toledo sits 5-1 in conference play and despite being 1 game behind the Broncos, they’ll have a chance to steal the tiebreaker next week, should they win here against Ball State.
The Rockets have put together back to back road wins at Akron and Northern Illinois, with last week being a come from behind win over the Huskies.
Toledo’s offense picked up the pace and big play ability in the 4th quarter as QB Logan Woodside found his groove.
The Rockets offense is putting up 539.7 yards per game this year and scoring nearly 40 points.
This offense will find plenty of success here against Ball State through the air. The Rockets are putting up 339.5 pass yards per game and will have a chance to go up against a defense that is allowing 313.1 yards through the air per game (126th in the nation).
