Why Kent State can cover

Junior quarterback Collin Schlee has been an athletic playmaker under center. Schlee is able to make moves in space and isn't afraid to take off and run. He has a strong throwing arm with good field awareness. The Maryland native has thrown for 1,731 yards and nine passing touchdowns. Schlee has also logged 381 rushing yards and another three scores. 

Sophomore receiver Devontez Walker is a focal point in the passing attack. Walker creates separation consistently and owns a pair of sure hands. He's tough to bring down in open space but can also go up to snag contested passes. The North Carolina native has 42 receptions with 630 yards and eight touchdowns. In the Oct. 8 loss to Miami (Ohio), he racked up 11 catches for 159 yards and two scores. 

Why Bowling Green can cover

Senior receiver Odieu Hiliare is the No. 1 option in the passing attack. Hiliare is a smooth route runner who thrives in the intermediate part of the field. The Florida native has built good chemistry with quarterback Matt McDonald. Hiliare ranks first on the team in receptions (35), receiving yards (426), and receiving touchdowns (4). 

Receiver Tyrone Broden is a big-body weapon (6-foot-7, 210 pounds). Broden utilizes his size to bully and box out defenders as he goes up to snag contested throws. He provides this offense with a big-time target in the red zone. The Michigan native has 20 catches for 308 yards and a team-high four touchdowns.
