2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl results: Kent State falls to Arkansas State, 17-13

Michael Chang

Arkansas State outlasted Kent State on Sunday night, winning the 2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl, 17-13.

On a night when both offenses struggle, the Arkansas State Red Wolves found a way to take a lead and hang onto it, defeating the No. 25 Kent State Golden Flashes in the GoDaddy.com Bowl, 17-13.

Kent State got on the board first in the second quarter behind the effort of running back Dri Archer, who broke off a 44-yard run to put the Golden Flashes in striking distance and a 16-yard run to put them into the end zone. Arkansas State responded, however, sustaining two late drives and scoring two touchdowns with less than six minutes remaining to take a 14-10 lead into half.

In the second half, the two offenses struggled. Each team picked up a field goal in the third quarter, but in the fourth, Kent State did not have a true scoring threat until the very end of the game. Driving late, the Golden Flashes got the ball close to the Arkansas State red zone but were unable to pick up a fourth-down conversion with just over one minute to play. The Red Wolves regained possession and kneeled out the clock to pick up the victory.
