MUNCIE, Ind. (WANE) – Ball State is looking to build off arguably the best season in program history as the Cardinals kick off their 2021 campaign with a Thursday night home game against Western Illinois.
Kick is set for 7 p.m. at Scheumann Stadium in Muncie.
Ball State is coming off a MAC championship, the first under head coach Mike Neu. The Cardinals also won a bowl game in 2020 for the first time in program history.
Ball State returns 20 of 22 starters this fall, including offensive lineman Curtis Blackwell of Norwell.
