— Kent State Athletics (@KSUAthletics) August 27, 2014 The emblem, honoring the life of starting center Jason Bitsko, will adorn the 27 yard line for the duration of the football season. What a classy display by the Kent State Athletic Department to honor one of their most beloved football players.
