Here as always. Leave your predictions on the final score and sundry pregame thoughts. We're 35 minutes or so from kickoff.

For what little it's worth, I'll go ahead and say Indiana 31 - Ball State 23
I root for all Indiana teams, as long as they reside in Bloomington.
Buffalo running through the quarry on the scoreboard and we're almost underway here.

Indiana set to receive. Mullen and Wynn deep to return. Here we go.
Loooong gain on a wide receiver screen for Latimer to start the game. Nearly went all the way. As it is, 36 yards and IU's into Ball State territory.
A run call on third-and-7. IU playing it a bit conservative.

Indiana's drive stalls at the Ball State 29. Ewald on to attempt a 46-yard field goal. Indiana calls timeout first. This has been a really rapid start to the game.
Ewald's kick is good. Indiana takes the game's first lea, 3-0 with 12:06 left in the first quarter. Defense's first possession much more important.
Coffman looked good and comfortable on the first possession, just some odd play-calling there at the end of IU's drive.
Tried my best to get out of work..... Didn't happen. Thanks for having this thread so I can follow along some
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Three-and-out from Indiana. A couple of really good open-field tackles by Greg Heban and excellent pressure on Keith Wenning by Adam Replogle on third down. That's an excellent start for Indiana's defense.
Strong stand by the Hoosier defense after a personal foul set Ball State up with great field position on the kickoff. IU ball at its own 15 to start its second possession.
IU defense getting a nice pass rush on Wenning.
I don't know if Coffman just doesn't have his field rhythm yet, or if Ball State's coverage is that good, but he's taking too long with the ball. Three-and-out Indiana.
Three-and-out as Cam Coffman gets a little wild on the second possession. He needs to settle in.
Fumble given to Indiana, but I don't think it's gonna stand. Ball State driving.
Indeed, they overturn the call. Replays weren't exceptionally conclusive, but I think we can all probably agree that the ball carrier was down. First-and-10 Ball State at the IU 32.
The fumble is overturned by review. BSU ball and driving.
Easy play action fake puts Ball State on the board, as Wenning throws his first touchdown pass of the year. PAT good. Cardinals up 7-3.
BSU made that look easy. BSU's average starting field position is awfully good right now. The Cards are going to score a lot of points if they continue to get the ball at their own 40-yard line or better.
Looks like this is a D'Angelo Roberts drive. With this fast pace, they can't sub in RBs too much.
Ball State takes over at IU's 45-yard line after stopping the Hoosiers on 4th-and-1. Once again, great starting position for the Cardinals.
Indiana needs a really big stand here from its defense. A pick-six by Greg Heban just then would have done the trick.
Instead, Kenny Mullen gets beat deep in one-on-one coverage and Ball State scores. 14-3 Cardinals. Hard not to feel like Indiana is in trouble right now.
Not good for IU. A 34-yard pass from Wenning to Sneed beats Kenny Mullen in the end zone. Sneed ran by him and Mullen couldn't recover.
Ball State making it look easy. Wenning also through a nearly identical TD pass against IU last season.
