What’s Going To Happen

For all intents and purposes, Buffalo is now out of the MAC title hunt.

It needed Bowling Green to shock Miami University on Wednesday night – instead of getting blasted 44-3 – and now the only hope is to win out and pray for an all-timer of a college football miracle. MU has to lose to Akron next week – that’s not going to happen – and at Ball State.

But just getting bowl eligible with a win here would be a plus. There will likely be more eligible MAC teams than spots, so getting to seven wins would be huge, eight would cement another game.

First, UB has to take care of its last road game of the season just to get to six wins.

Kent State can still get bowl eligible, but that would require winning out against UB, Ball State and at Eastern Michigan. Even at 3-6, the team has been far more competitive in Year Two under Sean Lewis, with the offensive style starting to kick in just enough to be dangerous.

The problem is a Buffalo offense that’s become unstoppable over the last few weeks.

The Bull lines will be the difference. The pass rush will own a Kent State offensive front that’s not stopping anyone, the O that put up 43 points in each of its last two games will be balanced, and on the road, the D will be on the sidelines for most of the game.

Kent State is next-to-last in college football in time of possession, and Buffalo is sixth. The Bulls will hold on to the ball for well over 35 minutes, grinding out scoring drives late to overcome another strong outing from Golden Flash QB Dustin Crum.

The big problem for Kent State? It’s not going to come close to getting 100 yards on the ground – a must to pull this off.
