It took until the third quarter for the defense to get some stops, but that dangerous Golden Flashes defense finally forced a turnover (a Jawon Chisholm fumble) and started tipping passes at the line of scrimmage. Trayion Durham ran in for his second touchdown of the game and Dri Archer finally gave Kent State the lead on a beautiful 30-yard reverse (accented by a marvelous Spencer Keith block downfield). Archer is now at 142 total yards on 12 touches.
Akron had just one first down in the third quarter. Yep.
