FINAL: Kent State Falls To South Alabama, 38-21

Kent State was overmatched, overworked and outplayed Saturday afternoon, and it was clear early on as the Golden Flashes fell to South Alabama 38-21.

Early on the Flashes' defense had trouble slowing the no-huddle spread offense that the Jaguars brought to the table, and it led to Kent State trailing 17-7 at half. Ross Metheny picked the Kent State secondary apart, completing passes an an unearthly rate and leading the South Alabama offense down the field with ease. Though he finished the game without a passing touchdown, he added a score on the ground and was the main reason the Jags rushing attack was unstoppable.

All told they rushed for 259 yards and four touchdowns as a unit against a Kent State defense still ravaged by injuries.

David Fisher struggled in the first half filling in for injured starting quarterback Colin Reardon, but got the ball moving for Kent State late in the game. He throw for two scores in the fourth quarter, including one with just six seconds on the clock. He finished the game 14 of 26 for 141 yards and two scores, and no interceptions. He also added 106 yards on the ground for the Golden Flashes.

Despite the rest of the team's struggles, Dri Archer once again showed why he's one of the best play makers in college football. He finished the day with 199 total offensive yards, on 12 touches, including a 73-yard rushing touchdown and a 74-yard receiving touchdown.

Full recap coming later.
