Ball State coach Pete Lembo
BSU Football Preparing for Michigan Game This Weekend
FREE PRESS REPORT
MUNCIE, INDIANA - Ball State coach Pete Lembo was ready to get Jahwan Edwards back on the field Tuesday after that defeat at North Texas on Saturday.
And Edward's hands along with quarterback Keith Wenning's arm will be needed against Eastern Michigan that is inviting Ball State to their homecoming festivities.
The 2-1 Cardinals missed the opportunity to beat the Mean Green after kicker Scott Secor missed a couple field goals. That lack of scoring by Ball State in the second half caused the game to fade away.
Eastern Michigan has been beat twice by Ball State, and Lembo anticipated a veteran team with a tough defense would have an ax to grind. But Edwards is planning to practice today after suffering a concussion and being sidelined.
Ball State has still scored on the first possession of every game and has an offense that put up more points in the first two games than any other time in history.
Lembo emphasized the Eagles at 1-2 play bigger teams like Penn State and Rutgers that defeated Eastern Michigan in non conference play.
That Saturday trip to Ypsilanti will be followed by a home game Sept. 28 with always tough Toledo.
