The Kent State Golden Flashes host the Toledo Rockets in a MAC college football tilt.

The Kent State Golden Flashes could not compete with Buffalo on either side of the ball in a 38-14 loss in week eleven. Kent State managed 183 yards and held the ball for under 25 minutes with the Bulls piling up 478 yards.

The Golden Flashes struggled to throw the ball with quarterback Woody Barrett completing 6-13 for 27 yards while losing 13 yards on five carries.

Dustin Crum gave Kent State 66 rushing yards on ten touches with a score while Jo-El Shaw ran 20 times for 50 yards. Crum also tossed an eleven yard TD pass to Mike Carrigan for the Golden Flashes second score.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
