A double-header in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) takes place on Tuesday night with Ball State facing Miami (OH) and Bowling Green going head-to-head with Ohio to close out regular season play. In addition to adding a victory to the win column, the winner between the Cardinals and RedHawks will punch their ticket to the Bahamas Bowl on December 16, 2022.
Ball State (5-6, 3-4 MAC) is hoping to bounce back after a 32-18 loss last week to Ohio sent them to below .500 in conference play. The Cardinals were limited to just 94 rushing yards while having no answer for the Bobcats, who finished with 224 yards on the ground. Sieh Bangura accounted for 148 yards alone, but Ball State still has a chance to go bowling if they can secure a win on Tuesday night.
Miami (OH) (5-6, 3-4 MAC) has a chance to finish their regular season with a two-game winning streak after besting Northern Illinois 29-23 last week. Aveon Smith accounted for three total touchdowns, one through the air and two on the ground, to give the RedHawks a halftime lead that they would never relinquish. Smith also totaled 105 rushing yards on 20 carries as Miami (OH) has their sights set on going bowling if they can get the job done versus Ball State.
Miami (OH) is a 2.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -135 on the moneyline. Ball State is priced at +115, with the over/under set at 45.
