2016 GoDaddy.com Bowl Preview
The 2014 GoDaddy.com Bowl brought the Arkansas State Redwolves and the Ball State Cardinals to Mobile, Alabama's Legion Field. It was a back and forth first half that left the two teams tied at 10 after a last second Redwolves touchdown to end the 2nd quarter. Arkansas State found the uprights twice in the third quarter to manage a 6 point lead heading into the fourth quarter but would appear to be outdone by Ball State in the last quarter of play. A last minute Ball State drive would seem to be the nail in the coffin for the Redwolves as the Cardinals took a 20-16 lead. Arkansas State did everything but lay down as the sophomore quarterback marched down the field for the 23-20 game winning touchdown with 32 seconds remaining. Check back later for a preview of the 2015 GoDaddy.com Bowl between the MAC and the Sun Belt.
