Ball State prediction

By mrasor Published: September 13, 2008

It's been pouring rain the past 24 hours, and relief does not appear to be in sight.
How will that affect the game?
Normally, it is a detriment to the offense that relies heavier on passing, which would be Ball State. However, Cardinals quarterback Nate Davis wears a glove on his throwing hand, so maybe it won't affect him.

    News and notes...
    The Muncie Star Press mentions that Ball State is 9-2 in the past two years in MAC road games. However, it has lost its last two MAC openers. The publication predicts a 40-24 Cardinals win.
    The Indianapolis Star said this game might determine the MAC's best quarterback. (Uhh. Dan LeFevour and about six other guys probably have a better argument for that than Chris Jacquemain.)
    The ABJ's Michael Beaven talked to Chris Kemme about how the game will turn out.

Prediction -- The Zips' offense will be downright unstoppable. Andrew Johnson will put on a show in his debut at the Rubber Bowl. Problem is, Ball State will move the ball at an equal pace. Davis will throw a couple interceptions that make up the margin between the teams.

The No. 2 national ranking won't last.
The Zips lost last night to unranked New Mexico by a 1-0 score. They will play Missouri State Sunday afternoon.
