A pair of 1 win MAC teams meet on Saturday afternoon as the Kent State Golden Flashes and Buffalo Bulls get set for battle.
Neither team has looked good this season and are pretty much in a must win situation if they hope to have any chance at grabbing bowl eligibility this season.
Kent State Golden Flashes
It’s extremely odd to see the Golden Flashes a favorite, let alone a road favorite.
Kent State enters play just 1-4 on the season and managed to blow their shot at taking down arch rival Akron on Saturday.
After taking the lead on what was a flip pass from QB Nick Holley on 4th down with just a minute to play, the Golden Flashes got beat deep and eventually allowed the go ahead touchdown with just 20 seconds to go.
Kent State 27 point outburst was a nice sight, as this team ranks near the bottom in the nation in points per game at 20.6.
QB Nick Holly, who is a true RB, was inserted as the emergency QB after injuries to Justin Agner and Mylik Mitchell.
With Agner out for the season and Mylik Mitchell questionable, Holly could get the nod once again.
The Buffalo Bulls have actually found a way to be worse than the Kent State Golden Flashes.
Buffalo is just 1-3 on the season and has a loss to Albany under their belts. They come in off a blowout loss to the Boston College Eagles 35-3.
The inability to put points on the board is nothing new to this Bulls team either.
Buffalo is averaging a mere 14 points per game, which ranks 126th in the nation. The Bulls put up just 274 yards per game as they simply cannot find any sort of playmakers to give the ball too.
QB Tyree Jackson has just 475 yards through the air while RB Jordan Johnson has only 231 yards on the ground. Johnson has to get himself going as the Buffalo pass game just has no spark to it.
If Johnson can get himself going early, it will get the Kent defense on their heels and open some gaps in the secondary.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
Both offenses are just abysmal.
Look for a lot of punts here as the field position battle is going be the biggest key to this game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under
Expect the points to come from the field goal kickers, as scoring touchdowns are just something neither team does well.
