The Cardinals are coming off a bye week, or "extended week," in preparation for the Chips. Ball State sits at 8-1 on the season and has yet to drop a game at home. The midweek affair marks the first time these team's have met on a Wednesday since 2009, a win for Central. BSU claimed a Wednesday victory in the 12-2 season of 2008.
The Cardinals will play at Central Michigan in an 8 p.m. game, broadcast on the Ball State Radio Network and available on ESPN2.
