The 9-3 Ball State Cardinals and the 9-4 Central Florida Knights match up tonight in what should be a relatively high-scoring affair; Ball State is currently ranked 30th in the NCAA with 35.0 points per game, while Central Florida ranks 27th with 35.2.

Although both teams are fairly light on top prospects, there are still a few draft-eligible players worth keeping an eye on. Read on for profiles of some of the game’s top options.

Maybe it wasn’t the Big-12-SEC match up some people wanted this year, but it did prove that Kansas State could hold it’s own against a team from “the best conference in college football.” Arkansas prevailed, and had far more Draft prospects for this season.

It’s safe to say that the 2012 NFL Draft prospects in the Capital One Bowl between Nebraska and South Carolina went down fighting.
