We have reached week five of the college football season, and most teams are playing conference games this weekend.
One of those conference games is a MAC showdown between two teams who are expected to finish near the bottom of the conference.
The Buffalo Bulls make the trip to Kent, Ohio to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes. The Golden Flashes won last year match up by a final score of 44-20.
The Buffalo Bulls had a tough schedule to open up their season having to play Minnesota and Army, and as most expected they lost both of the games, but they were able to cover the spread in both of those games.
The last two games have been better though betting Colgate and FAU, both games they were favored in. Like the first two games of the season they were also able to cover both of those spreads in victory.
The big difference for this team has been the play of the quarterback. Freshman quarterback Tyree Jackson has breathed a new life into this team having thrown for 733 yards and three touchdowns.
He injured his knee during the last game, but is expected to be good to go for this game, although that is something to watch closer to kick off.
On the defensive side of the ball the Bulls have been good against the pass but are allowing 230 yards per game on the ground.
That is going to need to improve in this game if they want to win because the Golden Flashes are a team that almost exclusively runs the ball.
Kent State Golden Flashes
On the other side of this match up is the Kent State Golden Flashes who have scored a total of six points against FBS level competition this year.
In the other game they did play an FCS level competition in Howard and were able to come out ahead by the final score of 38-31.
The biggest issue for the Golden Flashes is they run an offense that is all about running the ball, but they haven’t done a good job of running the ball so far this year.
To win this game they are going to need to find a way to get the run going. They can’t throw the ball and the Bulls are going to put up points so they need to find a way to try and keep up with them.
