We have reached week five of the college football season and most teams have reached the conference part of their schedule.
This game features two MAC teams with 2-2 records going to battle.
The Ball State Cardinals make the trip to Kalamazoo to take on the Western Michigan Broncos. The Broncos have won the last three games played between the two teams.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals season has gone exactly how most people have expected so far this year. They have won the two games they were favored in and lost the two games they were underdogs in.
They also come into this game having gone 3-1 against the spread this year. The most encouraging part for their fans is how they have kept the losses close.
In their first game of the season they had a chance to beat Illinois but threw an interception late and fell just short, losing 24-21.
In this game the Cardinals have a really up hill battle as they are going to be without their starting quarterback. Riley Neal is out indefinitely dealing with a leg injury.
Jack Milas will step up in his place, and he struggled in the last game against Western Kentucky. He did throw for 267 yards but had zero touchdowns and two interceptions.
They are going to need him to play really well in this game if they want any chance to pull the huge upset in this game.
Western Michigan Broncos
On the other side of this match up is the Western Michigan Broncos who had a really tough schedule to start the season, but have still played really well.
They played USC and Michigan State to start the season, and lost both of the games, but they still played well in those games.
In their last two games they played Wagner and Idaho and they look dominant in those games. The offense got going early and often in those games, and they were good tune ups for the conference schedule.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the offense. The higher the score in this game the better the chance they are the one leading.
Look for them to go up tempo with the offense and try to get the offense really clicking early.
