  • Both Teams Have Struggled In MAC Play
  • Ball State Must Win the Game to Remain In Bowl Contention

The Buffalo Bulls will be traveling to Scheumann Stadium to take on the Ball State Cardinals. Buffalo comes into the game with a record of 4-7. Last week, they looked great despite losing their game. They forced Northern Illinois, the top team in the conference, to overtime. Despite losing in overtime, this was still a great showing for the Bulls.

Ball State has a record of 5-6. They currently sit tied for the last in the MAC West. Last week, they were defeated by Central Michigan by a final score of 37-17. Despite this being a very lopsided loss, Central Michigan is a very talented team in the MAC this season, so a loss was not all too surprising.
