Ball State Cardinals vs San Jose State Spartans Prediction

Ball State managed to pull off a good win over Buffalo, however the Cardinals are not going to have an easy time generating an offense against a San Jose State team that enters this game ranked 13th on defense, 16th on defense. hurried and 60th in pass defense. San Jose State has strong offensive weapons led by quarterback Nick Starkel and as I believe the Spartans can win the battle on both sides of the ball.
