We have reached week two of the college football season with a lot of big games happening on Saturday. In this game the Howard Bison make the trip to Dix Stadium to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes.
Last time these two teams played the Golden Flashes came out ahead 38-31.
The Howard Bison come into this game looking for their first win after losing their opening game to the Ohio Bobcats but don’t let the record fool you, they are a good offensive team.
They put up 645 yards in the first game including 484 yards through the air. The defense just let them down and it led to a loss.
They are led at quarterback by Sophomore Caylin Newton, who is Cam Newton’s younger brother and shows a lot of the same traits as the Carolina Panthers quarterback.
He is a real gunslinger who can really hurt opponents with the way he can bring the offense up and down the field.
In this game it’s going to start with the defense and they need to be better. The offense should do it’s part but if the defense struggles again that could mean the second week in a row that the offense is good and the defense lets them down.
Kent State Golden Flashes
On the other side of this matchup is the Kent State Golden Flashes who haven’t had a good team for years but they showed some reason for optimism in their first game against Illinois.
They came in as 18 point underdogs but the offense actually performed pretty well putting up 24 points and although they still lost, they only lost by seven points.
The Golden Flashes are still a team that relies on the run putting up 270 yards on the ground but this year they are putting a bit more focus on passing the ball.
Woody Barrett threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions which is concerning and he needs to do a better job of taking care of the ball.

I really like the Bison offense and the way they are able to move the ball. They played well against an Ohio team that is much better than Kent State.
