Ball State at Eastern Michigan: Halftime

The first quarter was absolutely horrible for the Eagles. They started off strong after they received the opening kickoff, driving down the field for a 7-yard Darius Jackson rushing touchdown. Keith Wenning threw a pair of good floaters to Jordan Williams into the end zone for some scores that helped give Ball State the 27-6 edge.

The second quarter was a different story, though. The Cardinals didn't light up the scoreboard like they did in the first 15 minutes of the game. Their only score happened with 59 seconds left in the half with a 27-yard rushing touchdown by Jamill Smith off of a reverse to the left side. Ball State didn't have to punt until the second quarter, in which they were forced to three times.
