MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Zach Terrell threw for three touchdowns, Jarvion Franklin ran for three more and the defense made a late goal-line stand Saturday in Western Michigan's 42-38 comeback win over Ball State.
Franklin led Western Michigan's surge with TD runs of 2 and 4 yards in the third quarter and a 54-yard scoring run in the fourth to make it a three-point game. Terrell hit Daniel Braverman on a 12-yard TD pass for the go-ahead score with 1:25 to play.
Ball State (1-5, 0-2 Mid-American) had a chance to win but turned the ball over downs on the Western Michigan 8.
Franklin gained 161 yards on 24 carries for the Broncos (3-3, 1-1) and Terrell was 20 of 29 for 290 yards passing and an interception.
