The Western Illinois Leathernecks will go against the Ball State Cardinals in NCAAF action in Scheumann Stadium, IN, on Thursday, September 02, 2021, at 7:00 PM (EDT). The Leathernecks went 1-5 during the FCS spring session, but their pass rush is threatening enough to be a worry. Western Illinois hasn’t been to the FCS playoffs since the 2017 season when they placed second in the conference (8-4). After a devastating defeat to Weber State, that trip to the playoffs came to an end as well. Senior Connor Sampson struggled with interceptions, but he passed for nearly 300 yards each game – partially because he sought to pick up the momentum – and he had his three leading targets.

 

The ball will be distributed around, so Tony Tate, Dennis Houston, and Dallas Daniels will all be able to keep things going. In a 30-24 defeat against Missouri State, the Leathernecks were able to turn things around a strong passing game and 3 takeaways from the defensive performance.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Western Illinois’ last 8 matches.

  • The Western Illinois Leathernecks are 2-17 SU in their last 19 matches.

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Western Illinois’ last 8 matches on the road.

Western Illinois Leathernecks vs Ball State Cardinals Predictions 9/2/2021

 

The pass rush for Ball State is only average, while the secondary allows about 300 passing yards per game. The Cardinals were able to overcome a few missteps during their outstanding 2020 season by accumulating a large number of takeaways. The secondary isn’t particularly impressive, but it’s stacked with experienced players who can tackle and produce picks. Sampson may be able to throw, but he’ll betray this team with a couple of interceptions.

 

Ball State’s offensive efficiency, on the other hand, should be able to get off to a fast start. Ball State’s offense hasn’t been a problem in recent years, and it shouldn’t be in 2021, with 10 starters slated to return. The Cardinals were well-balanced, didn’t make many errors, and did a good job of keeping the gears going.

 

  • The Cardinals are 2-7 SU in their last 9 matches played in September.

  • The Ball State Cardinals are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches at home.

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Ball State’s last 6 matches.

Western Illinois Leathernecks vs Ball State Cardinals. The NCAAF pick for this game is the Ball State Cardinals. Target practice will be conducted by Ball State. Western Illinois will be a little stronger than its spring session record suggests, but it will not be enough to keep up. The Cardinal offensive line looks good right away, so this should be over quickly. Western Illinois can throw, but it will be hammered by a Cardinal passing assault that should be much better. The Ball State Cardinals will win to a predicted score of 42-17.
