A shockingly clean sheet in the 3rd quarter keeps Ball State on top of Toledo by 7, 17 to 10 the score after 3.
Both defenses suddenly stood tall out of the locker room. Ball State has evened up the turnover battle with a pick and a fumble recovery. The fumble recovery was particularly important, as Toledo had managed to get into the red zone for the first time all game. David Fluellen coughed up the ball, however, and the Cardinals managed to recover.
It didn't come to points, though, as the Cardinals couldn't move against the Rockets defense either. Only 2 drives in the 3rd quarter, 5 plays for 21 yards, and 7 plays for 44 yards.
