The Kent State Golden Flashes are 2-0 in the MAC and travel to the winless Eastern Michigan Eagles at 1 p.m. Saturday. The radio broadcast of the game will be on WHLO 640 AM.
Kent State is coming off a 45-43 win over Ball State last week on a field goal in the final seconds. The Golden Flashes are led by a potent rushing attack that features two backs who each average more than 80 yards per game. Trayion Durham has carried the ball 80 times for 344 yards and three touchdowns. Dri Archer has 38 carries for 331 yards and four touchdowns.
Eastern Michigan is coming off a bye and last played Sept. 22 in a 23-7 loss to Michigan State. The Eagles have struggled to score, reaching 20 points or more in a game just once in four games this season. Quarterback Alex Gillett has thrown four touchdown passes and rushed for two touchdowns, but he's also thrown six interceptions this season.
Kent State is favored by one.
