Broncos face Ball State on national TV

Nov. 21, 2008

KALAMAZOO--Kickoff for Western Michigan University's football game at No. 14-ranked Ball State has moved to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN2 and ESPN2 HD.

The contest is the regular season finale for both teams and will go a long way in determining the 2008 Mid-American Conference West Division champion. Ball State, Central Michigan and WMU could end the regular season in a three-way tie for first in the MAC West, with tie-breakers deciding the division champion.

The Broncos enter the game with a 9-2 overall record, 6-1 MAC, and face the undefeated BSU Cardinals (11-0, 7-0), which handed Central Michigan its first MAC loss of the season, 31-24, Wednesday night in Mt. Pleasant. CMU (8-3, 6-1) previously handed the Bronco's their only MAC loss and finish their regular season against Eastern Michigan.

Tuesday's game marks the 20th time WMU has faced a ranked opponent. Seven of those contests were against MAC schools.
