We have reached week four of the college football season, and most teams have gotten into the conference portion of the games.
A few games this weekend are still non conference games though.
One of those games takes place at Papa John’s Cardinal stadium when the Kent State Golden Flashes make the trip to take on the Louisville Cardinals.
Kent State Golden Flashes
The Kent State Golden Flashes have had a terrible season so far. They come into this game with a 1-2 record, and the only win came against Howard an FCS level school by the final score of 38-31.
The other two games came against FBS level competition and they scored a total of three points in those two games while giving up a ton of points.
The biggest issue that Kent State has had against FBS programs is their inability to throw the football. On the season they have only averaged only 74.3 yards per game through the air.
If they want to win this game, they need to be able to throw the ball through the air. Now I am not saying 300 yards through the air, but they need to have some resemblance of a pass game.
On the defensive side of the ball they also need to be a lot better. They need to have have a spy on Lamar Jackson all game and not let him hurt them on the ground.
He is going to get his passing yards through the air and they can’t do anything about it. But if he hurts them on the ground too, it’s going to be a long afternoon.
On the other side of this match up is the Louisville Cardinals who have had really high hopes for this season, and felt like they could make the playoffs, but they hit a huge road block last weekend.
They played the Clemson Tigers and they looked completely over matched. The defense was dominated by the Tigers offense.
The Tigers defense also really got to Lamar Jackson and made him uncomfortable and that let Clemson to winning the game 47-21.
Now they could still make the playoffs but they are going to need to dominate the rest of the season, and get some help and that starts with dominating the Kent State Golden Flashes in this game.
This is a good chance for Lamar Jackson to have a really nice bounce back game, and to really rack up the yards through the air and on the ground.
For the Cardinals a win in this game won’t be enough. They really need to come out and be dominating from the opening kick.
