Miami-OH RedHawks vs Kent State Golden Flashes 10/26/2019
The Miami-OH Redhawks have their share of struggles on the road this season. However, sportsbooks feel that the case will be different this weekend. They are coming off a rousing win over Northern Illinois and will likely ride on that momentum. QB Brett Gabbert III will be a focal point of the offense with help coming from Jaylen Walker. Tightening their defense may be needed as well. So far, they have allowed opponents 208 yards a game in the air and 205 yards on the ground.
Players to watch: B. Gabbert III QB 91 CMP 167 ATT 1,182 YDS 54.5 CMP% 7.1 AVG 52 LNG 4 TD 5 INT; J. Bester RB 54 ATT 200 YDS 3.7 AVG 20 LNG; T. Shelton RB 45 ATT 167 YDS 3.7 AVG 13 LNG; J. Walker III WR 14 REC 273 YDS 19.5 AVG 40 LNG; J. Maye WR 12 REC 235 YDS 19.6 AVG 52 LNG
Kent State Golden Flashes
Holding home field advantage may not be enough for Kent State to buck the odds. They are coming off a loss to the Bobcats where the defense was hardly shown. However, they did allow Ohio to put in 45 points, something that needs to be addressed. Their offensive pummel could offset that. But against the Redhawks, they need to push themselves better to check the Miami-OH offensive machine. QB Dustin Crum had his best game of the season in that loss. He completed 24 of 35 passes for 262 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. Kavious Price, Mike Carrigan, and Isaiah McKoy compliment Crum but they may not be as lucky against the Redhawks.
Players to watch: D. Crum QB 107 CMP 150 ATT 1,136 YDS 71.3 CMP% 7.6 AVG 75 LNG 10 TD 0 INT; J. Shaw RB 69 ATT 331 YDS 4.8 AVG 54 LNG; W. Matthews RB 39 ATT 211 YDS 5.4 AVG 25 LNG; I. McKoy WR 35 REC 446 YDS 12.7 AVG 75 LNG; K. Price WR 25 REC 244 YDS 9.8 AVG 54 LNG
