Kent State went through an offensive lull in a couple of tough games versus Ball State and Northern Illinois, scoring just 54 points in each (they were within eight points in both games however). The Flashes got back to business with 87 against Ohio however.
As for Eastern Michigan, they’re more of a defense-oriented team, and seeing them on the other side of 70 points is more an exception than a rule these days. If the Eagles can come out and control this game early I think they have a good shot at a nice outing here. I’m going EMU.
