3 takeaways from Ball State's loss to Wyoming

Ball State Football has a losing record for the first time since 2019, as they fell to Wyoming 45-12. The Cardinals could never find a rhythm, as they fell into a 31-0 halftime deficit. The second half was closer, but Wyoming still had the edge and ultimately won the game.
