Most sports grow out of a simple formula—ball plus stick, ball plus kick, or car plus explosion. Obtain the necessary integers with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $19, you get two reserved-seating tickets to an NCAA football and basketball game at Ball State University in Muncie (a $64 value). This Groupon is valid for the following two games:

- Two reserved seats at a men’s basketball game against the Butler University Bulldogs at John E. Worthen Arena on Saturday, December 10, at 2 p.m.<p>
Ball State University bridges the sports gap between fall and winter with a season finale of gridiron action that determines BSU’s bowl prospects and an early-season basketball test where the Cardinals take on Hoosier-state rival and back-to-back NCAA Division I runner-up Butler University. On Senior Day, sophomore QB Keith Wenning leads the BSU football squad as it takes on conference rival Toledo. In his final game, senior safety and two-year team captain Sean Baker commands a savage defense, hoping to siphon the Rockets’ offensive fuel and replace it with maple syrup. A win may make the Cardinals sparkle a bit more brilliantly in the shoulder-padded eyes and hearts of NCAA bowl committees.
In his fifth season, basketball coach Billy Taylor looks to improve upon last season’s 19-win watermark with discipline, execution, and a giant piece of PVC pipe used to shout out plays. Taylor leads the charge of players such as sophomore guard Jesse Berry, who, in his early test, hopes to scuff up the glass slippers of the nation’s two-time March Madness Cinderella, Butler University. With both pentagonal gangs poised to make runs late into the season, this matchup bears the raucous potential to shake and rattle Worthen Arena for its ninth-ever sellout.
