Central Michigan vs Ball State 2013 Wednesday Night MACtion Open Thread

Wednesday night MACtion puts one of the best non-AQ teams in the country front and center tonight as the Ball State Cardinals host CMU in an attempt to remain unbeaten in the MAC.

After a double-feature of games (blow outs) yesterday, #MACtion returns for its first Wednesday night appearance of the year. A young and injury plagued Central Michigan (3-5 , 2-2 MAC) team heads down to Muncie, Ind., to take on a Ball State Cardinals (8-1, 5-0 MAC) team that's on a mission to prove it's the best team in the MAC. The Cardinals, and super-quarterback Keith Wenning get a chance to show off their skills live tonight on national TV.

But, CMU has been slowly improving after injuries to senior running back Zurlon Tiption and junior quarterback Cody Kater knocked both out in Week 1. The Chippewas have already knocked off Ohio this season, and with Tipton and Kater possibly making returns tonight, could we have an upset on our hands?
