Ball State receiver, Love 'improving'

MUNCIE – Ball State receiver Dante Love has made great progress in his recovery from a career-ending spinal injury and might be released from a rehabilitation center this week, coach Brady Hoke said.

Love, who took a head-on hit during the Cardinals’ 42-20 win against IU on Sept. 20, underwent surgery one day after the game.

“I want everyone to know that Dante is improving daily,” Hoke said at his weekly news conference Monday. “He is really making great strides. ... He is doing a great job with his recovery. He is positive and upbeat.”

No. 25 Ball State (6-0), which joined The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in school history this week, plays at Western Kentucky (2-4) on Saturday night.
