What’s Going To Happen
Can Howard do it again?
FCS vs. FBS betting lines are always a bit sketchy, but Howard came up with the biggest upset in college football history with a shocking win over UNLV, and now Caylin Newton – Cam’s brother – gets his chance to pull off another miracle.
But beating Kent State might not be all that crazy.
The Golden Flashes weren’t even close against Clemson last week, but they’re going to have problems against everyone. The passing game completed 1-of-5 passes against the Tigers, and the almost-always good defense couldn’t handle Tiger QB Kelly Bryant.
Newton isn’t Bryant, but he’s a dangerous runner – coming up with 190 yards and two scores against UNLV – leading a ground game that should come up with more than 200 yards. It won’t the 309-yard mark it did in Vegas, but it’ll be productive.
However, Kent State’s defense will be far, far stronger than UNLV’s was, and the running game will help, too. The Bison will be plucky, but lightning won’t strike twice.
