A fist pump and a smile

The Cardinals defeated the Sycamores 45-7 in Ball State's home opener, backed by 15,054 fans at Scheumann Stadium. Ball State returns to action Sept. 23 at 2 p.m. when Georgia Southern (2-1) travels to Muncie. 

'Throw the records out'

Ball State and Indiana State may both be winless through the first two weeks of the season, but each side remains hungry heading into a rivalry game for the Blue Key Liberty Bell Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. This contest will cap off Family Weekend at Ball State and is the Cardinals' home opener at Scheumann Stadium.

Ball State is winless against Southeastern Conference (SEC) opponents, and largely unsuccessful against any Power Five program. Despite the losses, what do the Cardinals gain from playing this elite competition?

'Bumps and Bruises'

After suffering four injuries, including two that left players out for the rest of the game, against Kentucky, Ball State football is gearing up to face another Power Five opponent in No. 1 Georgia. Will this stiff competition continue to adversely affect the Cardinals health?
