The Ball State Cardinals have added the Northwestern Wildcats to their 2015 football schedule, the school announced this morning.
Ball State will travel to face Northwestern at Ryan Field in Evanston on Sept. 26, 2015. The game will be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
The Cardinals now have two non-conference games scheduled for 2015. Ball State also hosts Middle Tennessee at Scheumann Stadium on Sept. 12.
Barring any changes, Northwestern’s 2015 non-conference slate is full. The Wildcats open the season at home against Stanford on Sept. 5. They also host Army and travel to face Duke.
