The Ball State Cardinals begin life after Keith Wenning today when they take on the Colgate Raiders at 2 p.m. This is the beginning of a new post-Keith Wenning era, as the greatest quarterback in program history is currently with the Baltimore ravens after being taken in the 2014 NFL DRaft. Gone also are Willie Snead (Browns) and Jonathan Newsome (Colts).
But back from their 10-3 (7-1 MAC) season are Jahwan Edwards, Jordan Williams, Ben Ingle, and most importantly, head coach Pete Lembo, whom many believe is the best head coach outside of a power conference.
Colgate, an FCS team from the Patriot League, is coming off of a 4-8 year under first-year head coach Dan Hunt. The Raiders return 15 starters. Ball State is clearly favored in the game though, and Cardinals fans should expect this to be more fo a tune-up matchup.
This is the first time these two teams will ever meet.
WHEN: Sat., Aug. 30 at 2 p.m. ET.
WHERE: Scheumann Stadium in Muncie, Indiana.
