In the win over the Flashes, Ohio QB Nathan Rourke put up 342 yards with two TDs, and De’Montre Tuggle added 80 rush yards and two TDs. Rourke also rushed for 79 yards and two more scores. 

Over on the Ball State side, they’re 4-3 so far. Aside from losses to Indiana, FL Atlantic and NC State, the Cardinals have dispatched Fordham, Northern Illinois, EMU and Toledo. 

In the win over Toledo, Ball State QB Drew Plitt posted 206 yards, three touchdowns and a pick, while Caleb Huntley posted 119 yards rushing. Riley Miller had 87 yards and two touchdowns from four catches as well. 

Ohio is 17-4 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. The Bobcats are 0-4 ATS in their last four conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last four on turf. 

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games. Ball State is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 in October and 1-4 versus a team with a losing record. 

Ohio had their offense clicking in the win over Kent State, and showcased what they can do when they’re firing on all proverbial cylinders. Thing is, each of Ohio’s last three games has been decided by seven points or fewer. 

As for Ball State, they seem to be figuring things out as well on this three-game win streak and they’ve put up at least 23 points in every game this season. This is a really fun-looking matchup; I’m going with Ball State to eke out a cover but you could make a solid case either way really.
