Cardinals Trying To Bounce Back From Tough Loss To Notre Dame
The Cardinals are coming off a tough road loss to #8 Notre Dame, in a game that was closer than the Irish would have liked. Despite the loss, the Cardinals looked good and will go into their game against the Hoosiers with a lot of confidence.
Offensively, the Cardinals did a great job running the ball, finishing the game with 169 yards on the ground. Their passing game wasn’t as effective with quarterback Riley Neal completing 23 of 50 passes for 180 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
Defensively, the Cardinals did a great job against the run, holding the Irish to 117 yards on 41 carries, but they gave up three rushing touchdowns as well. Irish quarterback Brandon Wimbush completed 17 of 31 passes for 297 yards and three interceptions.
The Cardinals will likely try to capitalize on the fact that the Hoosiers haven’t played very well against the run, giving up 358 yards and three touchdowns on the ground in their last two games. If they can run the ball as well as they have in their first two games, they will have a decent chance to get the win over the Hoosiers.
Ball State will likely struggle to throw the ball against this week because the Hoosiers have done a great job against the pass in their first two games, giving up 307 yards through the air in those games.
