Ball State's Joel Godett reports on the football team's third practice of preseason camp as preparations continue for the 2014 season opener Aug. 30.

On Saturday he takes a look at the squad's running backs.  The Cardinals return five rushers from 2013 while adding in freshman Darian Green.  Returning are All-MAC performer Jahwan Edwards, jitterbug Horactio Banks, sophomore Teddy Williamson, eligable transfer Denzel Pierce and Southside product McKenzee Nash.

Of interesting note, Edwards is seeking to become the first Cardinals runner to lead the team in rushing in four seasons.  Five other backs have led the charts three times, but nobody has done it four.  Former NFL back Bernie Parmalee came the closest, missing the team lead in 1988 by just 27 yards. 

The Cardinals will practice Sunday and Monday at 2:15 p.m. each day at Scheumann Stadium before taking a day off the practice field for the school's annual Paint the Town Red event in downtown Muncie.

All Ball State practices are open to the public and are free of charge for admission.

Ball State football tickets are now on sale for single game, ticket packages and for the season.

Log on to or call 1.888.BSU.TICKET to purchase tickets to watch the Cardinals play this fall.
