Ball State saw their chance to win the MAC West go by the wayside in 48-27 defeat at Northern Illinois. This game was far closer then the final score indicates with the game tied 27-27 in the third before the Huskies rattled off 21 points in the final six minutes including a pick six. NIU won the real estate battle 569-494 with Ball State leaning on the pass a little more then the run. The Cardinals were able to do some damage with the run Jahwan Edwards who totaled 156 yards on 29 carries. Keith Wenning kept his team competitive by completing 35-49 for 324 yards with a touchdownd and a pick six in the final minute with Willie Snead the receiver of choice with 12 catches for 121 yards. The bottom line is the Huskies came up with big plays at the right time on both sides of the ball.
Ball State might not be winning the MAC West but a ten win season is there for the taking. Big line however but if the Cardinals actually play as usual I'll back them...
