Eager to rack up their fifth straight win, the Kent State Golden Flashes will hit the field this weekend for a key Mid-American Conference game against the Western Michigan Broncos.
Following a narrow 45-43 victory over Ball State in Week 5, the Flashes have gone on the road in each of the past two weeks to pick up hard-fought wins over MAC opponents. With both senior Spencer Keith and junior David Fisher seeing time at quarterback in recent weeks, Kent State will hope to once again control the game on the ground with the backfield duo of Trayion Durham and Dri Archer.
The 6'0, 260-pound Durham has carried the ball 125 times through six games for 525 yards and six touchdowns, but he has been spelled exceptionally well by the lightning-quick Archer off the bench. Weighing in at exactly 100 pounds fewer than his more physical teammate, Archer currently sports a remarkable 10.8-yards per carry average and leads the team with 625 rushing yards on just 58 attempts.
