Kent State vs LIU Game Preview
Why LIU Will Win
This hasn’t quite worked out for Kent State like it’s supposed to.
The offense hasn’t been able to get going, the defense has done its best but doesn’t have the manpower, and it’s been a rough 0-2 start with just 635 yards of total offense in the two losses.
LIU isn’t having a whole lot of luck, either, but the defense has been strong on third downs, the secondary is making big plays, and it was able to give a strong Villanova team a bit of a push.
Why Kent State Will Win
There’s a reason why Kent State struggled in its first two games. At Oklahoma, at Washington.
Even so, the defense held up relatively well considering the problems over the last few seasons. Now it’s time for the offense to eat.
LIU doesn’t hit its downfield pass with a ball control style trying to shorten the game. But in this, Kent State should be able to finally get its backs in space, and the FlashFast style should start to work.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s not going to seem like Kent State has the ball for all that often.
LIU leads all FCS teams in time of possession, keeping it for close to 40 minutes in the first two games, and Kent State will want to go 100 miles per hour.
Kent State will make the most of those possessions, the offense will finally look the part, and the season will finally get going.
