Murray State @ Ball State
Current Records: Murray State 0-2; Ball State 0-2
The Ball State Cardinals’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Murray State Racers at 2 p.m. ET Sept. 17 at Scheumann Stadium.
Ball State came up short against the Western Michigan Broncos last week, falling 37-30. The losing side was boosted by RB Carson Steele, who rushed for one TD and 147 yards on 26 carries. Steele’s performance made up for a slower matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers two weeks ago.
Special teams collected 12 points for the Cardinals. K Ben VonGunten delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, MSU has to be aching after a bruising 34-3 loss to the Jacksonville State Gamecocks last week.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
This is the first time these teams have played each other within the last seven years.
