Jahwan Edwards led the Cardinals ground game with 92 yards rushing, including 25-yard touchdown, while Horactio Banks scrambled for a TD from the 38. Scott Secor kicked a 37-yard field goal.
Western Michigan attempted a fourth-quarter comeback with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Corey Davis from Zach Terrell, then scored again on a 26-yard fumble return by Ronald Zamort.
