What to Know

After a two-game homestand, the Kent State Golden Flashes will be on the road. Kent State and the Bowling Green Falcons will face off in a Mid-American battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Doyt L. Perry Stadium. Bowling Green will be strutting in after a win while the Golden Flashes will be stumbling in from a loss.

Kent State entered their game against the Ball State Cardinals last Tuesday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. Kent State took a 27-20 hit to the loss column. They were up 13 to nothing at the end of the first quarter but couldn't hold on to the lead. Kent State's defeat came about despite a quality game from RB Marquez Cooper, who rushed for one TD and 168 yards on 32 carries.

Meanwhile, Bowling Green didn't have too much breathing room in their contest with the Western Michigan Broncos last week, but they still walked away with a 13-9 victory. The Falcons' only offensive touchdown came from TE Harold Fannin Jr..

This next matchup is expected to be close, with the Golden Flashes going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. Now might not be the best time to take Kent State against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past five consecutive games.

Kent State was able to grind out a solid victory over Bowling Green when the two teams previously met in October of last year, winning 27-20. The rematch might be a little tougher for Kent State since the squad won't have home-field advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
