A Mid-American battle is on tap between the Kent State Golden Flashes and the Ohio Bobcats at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Dix Stadium. Ohio will be strutting in after a victory while Kent State will be stumbling in from a defeat.
The contest between the Golden Flashes and the Georgia Bulldogs last week was not a total blowout, but with Kent State falling 39-22 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. RB Marquez Cooper put forth a good effort for the losing side as he punched in one rushing touchdown.
Special teams collected ten points for Kent State. K Andrew Glass delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, don’t be fooled by the insanely high score: we promise Ohio and the Fordham Rams were playing football. The Bobcats walked away with a 59-52 win last week. The win came about even with them handicapping themselves with 117 penalty yards. QB Kurtis Rourke had a dynamite game for Ohio; he passed for four TDs and 537 yards on 50 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 45 yards. Rourke’s performance made up for a slower matchup against the Iowa State Cyclones two weeks ago.
The Golden Flashes are the favorite in this one, with an expected 11.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Kent State is now 1-3 while Ohio sits at 2-2. The Bobcats are 0-1 after wins this year, and Kent State is 1-1 after losses.
