Quick first-half analysis: Ball State

Probably the worst half of football in the Ellerson era. Army had two chop blocks take away a Malcolm Brown touchdown and a big run by Trent Steelman into Ball State territory. Trailing 21-0, Army passed on its first play and Steelman was picked off , giving Ball State a short field at Army’s 17. Ball State scored its fourth touchdown. On Army’s next series, a bad pitch by Steelman to Malcolm Brown backed the ball to Army’s 8 on the first play.

After Brown’s TD was taken away, Army came away with no points as kicker Alex Carlton continued to struggle, missing a 31-yarder. That hurt.

Was waiting for a team to attack Army’s secondary and Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning is picking it apart. Ball State receivers are wide open on nearly every completion.

Army just hasn’t had knack for forcing turnovers this season. The Black Knights are not likely to pass its way back into the game. Army has completed one pass in its last eight quarters.

The second half will be for pride.

Positives: Junior Brian Cobbs is getting his first live action at cornerback this season.
