by GT Staff | NAVY at BALL STATE (-7, 60): The Cardinals are 2-0 lifetime against the Middies and defeated them 34-31 in overtime last season at Navy. Respected head coach Paul Johnson has left the ship and scrabble gold mine and QB Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada will miss the game as hes nursing a partial hamstring injury.

Ball State alma mater of legendary late night CBS talk show host David Letterman is loaded on offense with QB Nate Davis (2nd team All-MAC) having a number of options to get the pigskin to including first-team All-MACers Dante Love (WR) and Darius Hill (TE). The Cardinals cab pass, the Midshipmen cant and thats a very big advantage here. Toss in the fact that the games being played in the Hoosier State and on national TV as well as Ball St.s 10-5 ATS (since) record and its just too hard to back a shaky Navy team in this spot. BALL ST. -7 .
