Akron (2-2) vs. Kent State (1-3) Game Preview


Date: Saturday, Oct. 1
Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Dix Stadium, Kent, OH
Network: ESPN3

It’s the dangerous offense vs. the tremendous defense.

Kent State might not have shown anything defensively last week, but there’s a reason – Alabama. That doesn’t matter, but the Golden Flashes have to start showing off a little bit of offense after sputtering and struggling all year, including the two games against FCS teams.

Akron’s offense dominated everyone but Wisconsin, but that didn’t matter against Appalachian State last week with the run defense getting obliterated. This isn’t last year’s Zip defense, but that’s okay – it doesn’t need to be this week against one of the nation’s worst offenses.

Akron might have to go on the road, and the offense won’t explode, but it won’t have a problem answering anything positive the Golden Flashes do. QB Thomas Woodson will be just effective enough against the Kent State D that – AGAIN – isn’t getting any help whatsoever.
