New coaches at Indiana, Ball State ready for opener

INDIANAPOLIS - Kevin Wilson and Pete Lembo have been waiting months to make their debuts as the new coaches at Indiana and Ball State.

They'll finally get the chance Saturday night in the first Football Bowl Subdivision game ever played at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts.

Plenty has changed since the in-state rivals last met in 2008.

Back then, Ball State was a Top 25 team that upset Indiana on its home turf. Now, the Cardinals are trying to rebound after winning just six games in the past two seasons combined with a new quarterback, the third head coach in four years and a possible shuffle at running back because of injuries.

Wilson hasn't announced the Hoosiers' new quarterback and he has added an aggressive, up-tempo offense.
