The Northwestern Wildcats have looked extremely impressive this season and will look to add to their undefeated record when they welcome in the Ball State Cardinals.
Northwestern went on the road in Week 3 and knocked off Duke with a big 2nd half.
Ball State on the other hand, brings in a 2-1 record after knocking off EMU 28-17.
Kick off is set for 8:00 PM EST on Big Ten Network.
The Cardinals have looked impressive in both their wins this season and got a big conference win last week over Eastern Michigan.
Ball State’s mentality through the first 3 games has been to pound the ball offensively on the ground. The Cardinals rank 11th currently in rush yards as they have racked up 747 rush yards along with 10 TDs.
278 of those yards came in the win over Eastern Michigan as the Cardinals ran wild. RB Darian Green ran 25 times for 164 yards.
Green is currently 21st in FBS with 334 rush yards through the first 3 games.
Also lending a helping hand to Green is Freshman James Gilbert. The duo has combined for 10 of the Cardinals 12 touchdowns.
The Wildcats are making a case for themselves as potential Big 10 threats as they are 3-0 on the season and looking impressive doing so.
Northwestern added a solid win to their resume as they knocked off Duke, in Duke, in Week 3. The Wildcats were boosted by a 2nd half opening kick off return for a TD and the defense did the rest.
QB Clayton Thorson and RB Justin Jackson continue to rack up solid offensive numbers too.
Thorson did struggle against Duke throwing for just 70 yards and a pair of interceptions. Although, his backfield mate in Justin Jackson handled a lot of the offensive power.
Jackson rushed 35 times for 120 yards and continued to pick up chunks of yardage to keep the chains moving. It also kept the Duke offense off the field.
