1. College Football News Preview 2020: Kent State Golden Flashes Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
Yeah, Kent State pulled off one of the most amazing finishing kicks possible – at 3-6, it was dead in the water against Buffalo, and then came up with an epic comeback to win 30-27 as part of a four-game winning streak to close things out, including coming up with the program’s first ever bowl victory – but it’s going to be really, really hard to sustain the fun.
But give third-year head coach Sean Lewis this – his Kent State team is, in fact, fun.
It’s not always consistent, and it doesn’t have the bulk, the depth, or the talent to pull off too many upsets, if any, but the FlashFast style moves well and the offense should put up decent numbers.
And then there’s the schedule.
Set The Kent State Golden Flashes Regular Season Win Total At … 5
At Penn State, at Kentucky, at Alabama. Forget about winning any of those three.
It’s not like Buffalo and Western Michigan can’t be beaten, but those might be the two beat teams in the MAC and the battle with the Bulls is on the road.
The Golden Flashes have to go play in Oxford against defending MAC champion Miami University, and it has to go to Northern Illinois. Throw in the home dates against Ohio and Central Michigan, and where are the sure wins?
Kennesaw should be one, and Akron at home should be another, but it’s going to be a fight just to get close.
The program is good enough to get to five wins. Getting that sixth might come down to the date with the CMU to close out the regular season.
