Of particular note, Ball State beat Indiana for the third straight meeting. Kent State’s 47-14 loss a week ago at Kentucky is looking even worse after the Wildcats lost at home to Western Kentucky. After taking a 15-point lead in the second quarter, Northern Illinois watched Army score three straight touchdowns to make it a game, before trading touchdowns (and leads); after a tie and five lead changes, the Huskies scored last and won.
