The Bowling Green Falcons and the Kent State Golden Flashes will meet up on the college football gridiron Saturday.

Bowling Green sits at 1-2 this year so far. After an opener win over Morgan State 46-3, the Falcons lost to Kansas State 52-0 and LA Tech 35-7.

In the Week 3 loss, Bowling Green QB Darius Wade logged 171 yards and one pick, and Davon Jones led the rush with 48 yards. Quintin Morris led the way receiving with 90 yards from six catches.

Over on the Kent State side, they’re 1-2 this year as well with an OT win over Kennesaw State and two losses versus Arizona State 30-7 and Auburn 55-16.

In the Auburn game, Kent State QB Dustin Crum had 198 yards with one TD and also led the rush on 30 yards. Isaiah McKoy had a good outing with four catches for 85 yards and a score.

The Falcons are 9-19 ATS in their last 28 overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. Bowling Green is 4-18 ATS in the last 22 in September and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games versus a team with a losing home record.

Meanwhile, the Flashes are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five in September. The under is 6-2 in Kent State’s last eight on turf and 5-2 in the last seven conference games.

After hanging 46 points in Week 1, the Falcons have notched a grand total of seven points over their last pair of outings while allowing a whopping 87 on the other side.

Kent has had some issues as well, but they’ve seen primo competition in two of their three games. I’m going with the Flashes here; we’ll get to see what they can do.

Pick:
Kent State Golden Flashes -8
