Bowling Green vs Kent State Game Preview
Why Bowling Green Will Win
The offense didn’t work, there wasn’t any running game, and it’s been a grind all year. And …
Bowling Green 14, Minnesota 10.
It’s impossible to overstate just what that win might mean for the program, the Scot Loeffler era, and for a season that’s now shockingly 2-2 for a team that was expected to do next to nothing.
It’s the defensive side that’s getting it done, with a fantastic pass rush, a secondary that’s holding down, and nine takeaways in four games to make up for the other side of the ball.
Kent State has a great rushing attack, but so does Minnesota, and the Falcons pulled out a win. But …
Why Kent State Will Win
Yeah, the Bowling Green offense remains an issue.
It was able to run for 118 yards against Murray State, and in the other three games combined it came up with 63. There might be a bit of a passing attack, but the ground game is the worst in college football, the O is the worst in the nation on third downs, and the offense has no prayer of keeping up the pace if the Golden Flashes go off.
Kent State is 1-3, but those losses are on the road to Maryland, Iowa, and Texas A&M. Even so, the ground game for the FlashFast offense is still the best among all MAC teams so far.
What’s Going To Happen
Here comes the flip.
Kent State has the lousy record because of the schedule, but the explosion starts this week. Bowling Green might be fired up after the stunner against the Gophers, but it’s about to crash back to earth very, very hard.
