Through 3 Quarters
Only one more quarter stands between the Ball State Cardinals and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Buffalo Bulls 20-3.
Ball State has been relying on QB Drew Plitt, who has passed for one TD and 153 yards on 26 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown, and WR Jayshon Jackson, who was on the other end of that TD and has tacked on 98 yards receiving. Buffalo has been riding high on the performance of RB Dylan McDuffie, who has picked up 61 yards on the ground on 16 carries.
This is tied with the least points the Bulls have had yet this season going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know
A Mid-American battle is on tap between the Buffalo Bulls and the Ball State Cardinals at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Scheumann Stadium. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
Buffalo fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Northern Illinois Huskies on Wednesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 33-27. The contest was a 10-10 toss-up at halftime, but the Bulls were outplayed the rest of the way. Buffalo’s loss came about despite a quality game from RB Dylan McDuffie, who rushed for one TD and 125 yards on 29 carries.
Meanwhile, Ball State lost to the Central Michigan Chippewas at home by a decisive 37-17 margin. RB Carson Steele put forth a good effort for the losing side as he punched in one rushing touchdown.
Buffalo is expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in…
