I mentioned in my first Kent State Golden Flashes writeup when they opened the season against Eastern Michigan, that they would be a team to watch in the MAC and had a shot at one of their better seasons in school history. Well, Kent State is 3-0 and has one of the best offenses in college football, as it's first in total yards and points scored and second in rushing yards. The Buffalo Bulls are more trustworthy, as they've been a staple in the MAC the last few years and they're the better defensive team this season. However, Kent State is the real deal and we can't forget the Golden Flashes beat Buffalo last season. This program has come a long ways.
Give me Kent State and the points.
