Kent State defense clamps down, beats Akron 35-24

Either Kent State defense is developing a reputation for closing games or Akron is getting one for not. Or both! The Zips couldn't score in the fourth quarter either and a Trayion Durham touchdown in the final minute sealed the victory in the Wagon Wheel game.

Akron had basically one shot at taking the lead late in the game, but Jawon Chisholm was stopped on a fourth down run. Their previous drive was marred by two penalties in KSU territory, forcing them to punt. The Zips fall to 1-8, as teams unable to close are wont to do, and will host UMass next Saturday.

Kent State is now 8-1 (you read that right) and have their longest winning streak in 70 years. They'll draw a tricky trip to Miami (OH) next Saturday.
