The 2013 edition of the GoDaddy Bowl will pit two upcoming football programs against each other in Ball State and Arkansas State.
For the Cardinals (10-2), the team is coming off an impressive campaign in the MAC. It marks the team's second consecutive season with nine wins or more and its first 10-win campaign since 2008.
Backed by a strong passing attack, Ball State comes in as favorites.
On the other hand, although the Red Wolves (7-5) have won three fewer games than they had in 2011 and 2012, the team has made significant strides under first-year head coach Bryan Harsin. In fact, he has claimed the third-most wins by a head coach in his first season in school history.
Behind dual-threat quarterback Adam Kennedy, Arkansas State should give Ball State more than it can handle.
Here’s how the two teams match up.
Time: 9 p.m. EST
Place: Ladd Peebles Stadium, Mobile, Ala.
