Andy Rent’s GoDaddy Bowl Wrap-up: Arkansas State 23, Ball State 20 [Video]

 

I couldn't watch the game. No, not that I was nervous or anything; OK, a little.

It was a crazy and heartbreaking evening for my alma mater's football team.

However, probably the biggest game, I argue, is this Sunday night. My alma mater of Ball State tangles with Arkansas State in Mobile, Ala., in the GoDaddy Bowl. What do I think? Go Cards: Chirp! Chirp!
