What there is to know

This Saturday, the Kent State Golden Flashes are hoping to fill the gaps in a defense that has allowed an average of 36.8 points per game. The Golden Flashes and Akron Zips will face off in a mid-American battle on Saturday at noon ET at Summa Field at InfoCision Stadium. Since both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a bit of extra motivation ahead of this competition.

Kent State found itself the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 54-30 punch to the stomach against the Central Michigan Chippewas last week. Kent State was leading 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, but couldn’t hold onto the lead. RB Marquez Cooper put in a good effort for the losing team scoring two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Akron was hampered by 88 penalty yards against the West Michigan Broncos last Tuesday. Akron was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they lost 45-40 to WMU. The losing team was bolstered by WR Konata Mumpfield, who caught 11 passes for two touchdowns and 122 yards.

The Golden Flashes are the favorites in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 13.5 points. They were consistent ATS cash generators when favored (3-1), so they could be worth a quick bet.

Kent State won their game against the Zips when the two teams had previously met in November of last year with a concluding score of 69-35. The rematch could be a bit more difficult for Kent State since the team will not have the advantage on the field. We’ll see if the change of location makes a difference.
