The Ball State Cardinals (1-1) look to get their second win over an instate opponent, IUPUI Jaguars (1-2). The last time that these two teams faced each other was back in 2012, where the Cardinals fell 77-68 at home.
IUPUI has already fallen to two instate opponents this year, Indiana State and Purdue. In their last game, they were able to inch past Milwaukee to pick up their first win. Ball State traveled to Utah to take on the #25 Utes for their first game of the year, but unfortunately they couldn't pick up the W. However, they had no trouble beating IU Kokomo in their home opener at Worthen Arena.
If the Cardinals can beat the Jaguars, this would be a big momentum boost going forward. Especially because they weren't able to beat them in their last meeting.
