Ball State Cardinals vs. No. 16 Texas A&M Aggies football: How to watch, listen, stream and more

Ball State and Texas A&M both look to move to 2-0 when they meet later today in College Station.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

After a week one victory over VMI, the Ball State Cardinals look to continue their early success when they visit the #16Texas A&M Aggies later on this evening.

It was a seesaw performance by the Cards a week ago, as Ball State's offense exploded for 48 points on the Keydets. Even though the offense was so prolific, the defense struggled to contain and put away VMI in the second half. At first, the Cards held strong, but as the game went on, Ball State's defense started to allow more points and yards to a VMI-team who only scored 21 combined points in their two games versus FBS teams a season ago. By the time the dust settled, the Keydets torched the Ball State defense for 36 points. They accomplished this by using the speed of Dontae Mauck, who beat Ball State's defense twice on streak routes by just outrunning the Cardinal secondary. Darian Green ran for three touchdowns on nine carries, but all of them were from relatively short distances. Jack Milas shined for periods at quarterback, throwing for 338 yards over the course of BSU's 48-36 victory.

Texas A&M is also off to a winning start. The Aggies jumped on #15 Arizona State early and often in their 38-17 victory in Houston. A&M lead 14-0 early, and although the Sun Devils cut the gap to 17-14 by the end of the third quarter, the Aggies outscored ASU 21-3 in the fourth quarter to pull away for good. Kyle Allen was stellar for the Aggies as well, throwing 15 completions on 26 passes for 198 yards to lead the way in the passing game. A&M also used quarterback Kyle Murray at quarterback, but the true freshman exited the game with an injury just after halftime.

This is the first ever matchup between the Cardinals and Aggies.
