Mark Zerof-US PRESSWIRE

On Saturday, the Kent State Golden Flashes improved to 10-1 with a 31-24 victory over Bowling Green. With the victory, Kent State secured the MAC East championship.

The Kent State Golden Flashes continued their quietly impressive 2012 season on Saturday, with a 31-24 victory over Bowling Green. With the victory, Kent State improved to 10-1 on the season, and claimed the MAC East title.

Like it's been most of this season, the story for Kent State was the running game. Running back Dri Archer finished the afternoon with a season-high 241 yards on the ground, his third straight game of at least 100 yards rushing. Quarterback Spencer Keith had a relatively quiet afternoon with just 97 yards passing.

Meanwhile, it was a disappointing loss for Bowling Green, which could've put themselves in the driver's seat for the MAC East title had they held on for the win. Quarterback Matt Schilz threw for 355 yards and three scores, but also threw three interceptions as well. The loss dropped Bowling Green to 7-5 on the season.

Kent State will now play Ohio this coming Friday, before taking on Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship Game the following weekend.
