Kent State Golden Flashes
The good news for Kent State is that they are coming off a bye week. Following back-to-back losses, it will be interesting if the Golden Flashes were able to figure out their shortcomings. They are in dire need of a win to get back on track. Kent State is three wins short of bowl eligibility which makes this game very important. To do so, they need to do more on offense. They are averaging just 23.9 points per game. QB Dustin Crum needs to keep everyone together. He has been a bright spot for the Golden Flashes, throwing 1,345 yards, 10 touchdowns, and just 1 interception. The Kent State Golden Flashes‘ defense is not exactly that impressive as well. They are allowing opponents an average of 250.9 yards per game. With the Rockets dangerous offensive rushing attack, this could be a big problem.
Players to watch: D. Crum QB 130 CMP 194 ATT 1,345 YDS 67 CMP% 6.9 AVG 75 LNG 10 TD 1 INT; J. Shaw RB 73 ATT 320 YDS 4.4 AVG 54 LNG; W. Matthews RB 54 ATT 263 YDS 4.9 AVG 25 LNG; I. McKoy WR 40 REC 525 YDS 13.1 AVG 75 LNG; K. Price WR 32 REC 288 YDS 9 AVG 54 LNG
Like the Golden Flashes, the Toledo Rockets are also coming off a bye week. However, they are coming off a big win over Eastern Michigan which gives them some kind of momentum. A win is important for Toledo since they are giving chase to Ball State in the MAC West. Their offense has been astounding so far, averaging 245 yards per game. Bryant Koback is a player to watch. The running back has rushed 985 yards on 150 carries and 10 touchdowns this year. One area that needs work is their defense. The Rockets are allowing 28 points per game to opponents, an opening Kent State may exploit.
