Ball State Honor Roll...
Tajh Boyd: What a first half...19 of 23 passing for 229 yards and three touchdowns. He took the rest of the game off.
DeAndre Hopkins: What a first half, part 2...six receptions, 105 yards, and a school record-tying three touchdown catches.
Stephone Anthony: What a first half, part 3...a team-high seven tackles and an interception to set up a touchown. He finished with a team and career-high nine tackles.
