Ball State’s rally began with 2:24 left in the third quarter on a 22-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Mike Neu to receiver Brian Oliver. A Tony Nibbs’ two-point conversion run made the score 30-11 and that was all the scoring in the third stanza. BSU started its fourth-quarter scoring with a Neu to Oliver 98-yard TD pass with 11:02 left in the game. The Matt Swart extra point kick was good and closed the gap to 30-18. With 2:40 left in the contest, Neu completed a 15-yard scoring strike to receiver Kyle Robinson. Followed by Swart’s extra point kick, the Cardinals were down 30-24. Ball State’s final score came on a Neu to Erin McCray 6-yard pass as time expired in the game. Swart’s extra point kick with no time left on the clock gave the Cardinals a 31-30 win.
