College football's bowl season continues Friday with the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl
which features UCF against Ball State . The Cardinals enter the game riding a
six-game win streak, while the Knights dropped two of their final three
contests. Ball State has made five bowl appearances but has never managed to
earn a victory. The Knights have garnered just a 1-3 record in their four
previous bowl games, but they did win their most recent postseason appearance
with a 10-6 victory over Georgia in the 2010 Liberty Bowl. Ball State has a
2-1 record in this series and won the last meeting 21-17 between these former
Mid-American Conference foes.
