It’s a big Saturday showdown on Saturday at Dix Stadium in Kent, Ohio. The Howard Bison come to town to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes.
This is the first match up between the two teams in recent history.
The Howard Bison come into this game flying really high. They pulled off one of the biggest upsets ever in terms of line in the first game of the season.
They were 45 point underdogs against the UNLV Rebels but that didn’t seem to affect them. The offense was excellent all night and they ended up winning 43-40.
Calyin Newton, the younger brother of Cam Newton is the starting quarterback for this team, and he was excellent in his first start as a true freshman. He threw for 140 yards and one touchdown and one interception.
On the ground was where he really did his damage though. On 21 carries threw for 190 yards and two touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball is where the Bison struggled, and probably will all year. They gave up 564 yards and 40 points, and most games when the defense struggles that much they won’t come out with the win.
To win this game Newton needs to be good again, and the defense needs to be much better. If those two things can happen they could beat FBS schools for the second week in a row.
Kent State Golden Flashes
On the other side of this match up is the Kent State Golden Flashes who weren’t good in their first game, although they did have a really tough task at hand.
They struggled from the opening kick against the Clemson Tigers and that led to 56-3 beat down. The biggest struggle this team is going to have all year is not the defense, it’s going to be passing the ball.
In game they had a total of one passing yard. Now the Golden Flashes are a team that likes to do their damage on the ground, but if they have no threat of a passing game opponents can really key on that, and the offense will struggle again.
To win this game they need to get the passing game going, and the defense needs to be better.
Howard is the team coming into this game with all the momentum and if they get rolling early on, the Golden Flashes could lose for the second week in a row.
