A couple of MAC teams still looking for their first win meet up Wednesday night in Muncie. Eastern Michigan goes on the road for the 2nd straight week after falling 23-27 at Kent State last week as +4.5 underdogs.
Ball State also started off in a disappointing fashion last week, falling 38-31 at Miami of Ohio as -1 road favorites. The Cardinals’ passing game did look great last week though, thus why they are over a TD favorite in game two.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
Eastern Michigan is going to have a tough task ahead of them in an effort to pull to 1-1. The Eagles allowed 212 yards on the ground to Kent State last week, and KSU QB Dustin Crum was an efficient 21/29 passing with 2 TD.
Things don’t get any easier Wednesday against Ball State, who had the MAC’s #1 ranked offense last season. The Cardinals are versatile too, ranking 3rd in passing and 4th in rushing in the conference in 2019.
Surprisingly enough, it was Eastern Michigan who had the MAC’s best passing game last season, averaging 283.2 yards per contest. That was with Sr. Mike Glass III running the offense however.
Glass and his 3,100+ yards and 24 TD passes have graduated, and there were mixed results from Preston Hutchinson last week. Hutchinson was 21/35 with 2 TD, but also threw 2 INT which were devastating in a one score loss.
Ball State Cardinals
Oddsmakers were giving Ball State credit last week, making them a -1 road favorite at a Miami team that was 6-2 in the conference last year which was good enough for 1st in the MAC East.
The Cardinals instead lost their opener 38-31, despite a 309 yard passing effort from QB Drew Plitt. The redshirt senior threw for 2900 yards last season, with 24 TD to 7 INT. Plitt should be better in game two.
The season opener did produce a solid day for RB Caleb Huntley, who scampered for 130 yards and 2 scores. Huntley had 1,275 yards a season ago, and will be up against an Eastern Michigan team that allowed 200+ rush yards last week.
The Ball State defense did allow a 3 TD passing outing to Miami of Ohio QB AJ Mayer last week. That’s not an ideal situation heading into a matchup with EMU’s top passing attack in the MAC a year ago.

Even though they are breaking in a new QB, the Eagles did have the top passing attack in the MAC a season ago. That should allow them to keep this one close.
