Ball State Cardinals Game Notes
The defense of the Cards will have to take the next step this if it expects to be a contender as it was 11th in the conference in passing yards allowed last season. Christian Albright and Jordan Williams are playmakers on the second level as they combined for 20.5 TFLs and eight sacks in 2019. Amechi Uzodinma II made a name for himself last season in the secondary as he hauled in five interceptions.
Miami Ohio Redhawks Game Notes
Defensively, Miami brings back a lot of starters on a defense that was third in the conference in yards allowed. The back end remains a strength with Manny Rugamba and Sterling Weatherford. The departure of Doug Costin leaves a big hole in the middle of the DL, so Kameron Butler will have to build on his 5.5-sack season from a year ago.
