Ohio vs Kent State Game Preview

Why Ohio Will Win

Will the Ohio offense show up?

What’s Going To Happen

Apparently, Kent State is so good that America is starting to question whether or not Georgia can play college football anymore.

The Golden Flashes lost 39-22 – it wasn’t as close as the final score, even though Georgia never pulled away until late – but again, now the offense will show up in what should be a fun and wild shootout.
