look to make a move up the standings and take their place near the top of the MAC, which is never an easy task no matter how
much talent you have on your team. The conference boasts some of the top programs in college football, so the Cardinals always
have a tough battle ahead of them if they want to claim the top spot in the MAC. The Cards played well in 2013, notching 10
total wins while losing just a single conference game. Ball State is looking to play even better in 2014 as they vie for the
top spot in the West Division, giving fans plenty of reasons for optimism as they look to make it happen this season.

were the only team in the MAC's West Division to post a better record than the Cardinals last season. While the Cardinals-Huskies
matchup on Nov. 5 will have plenty of fanfare, so will the home finale against the Bowling Green Falcons on Nov. 28, another
conference matchup that is sure to have Scheumann Stadium absolutely hopping with energy and passion. Don't forget about the
road matchups either, as sooner or later every fan needs to see the Cardinals hit the gridiron away from home during a crucial
road matchup. Either way, the Cardinals have some exciting challenges and opportunities ahead of them in 2014, making it a
great time to sport the cardinal and white.
