Rankings say that Ball State at Indiana is one of this weekend’s top matchups

These aren’t your father’s rankings.

NCAA Football: Indiana at Florida International Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday afternoon the Ball State Cardinals and Indiana Hoosiers will kick off from Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana at 4pm ET. At least one set of rankings says that the MAC / Big Ten battle is among this weekend’s top matchups.

Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports has used his own mathematical formula to compile a list of the nation’s worst 25 teams. This season he used the same formula, the details of which he won’t share, to put together an unbiased list of the country’s top 50 squads.

With one week in the books, Fornelli is high on both Indiana and Ball State. IU’s opening week victory against Florida International earned them a #12 ranking, while the Cardinals came in at #22 following their victory in Atlanta against Georgia State.

The MAC is well represented on the list so it’s worth a click. Also it’s for fun, so don’t @ me, bro. Check out Fornelli’s Bottom 25 as well, it’s always a good time.
