Kent State reaches bowl eligibility, runs over WMU 41-24

Their MAC Digital Network feed cut straight to volleyball warmups with about six minutes to play, and that was the only blemish on the day. After spilling a 10-point lead to go down seven in the third quarter, Kent State got their act together and rattled off 24 straight points to improve to 6-1 and become bowl eligible for the first time since 2006. Their last bowl game was in 1972, but they seem on pace to finally play in one and break that terrible, terrible streak.

Dri Archer? All he had was two touchdowns and 115 yards on 14 touches. The play which broke the game open in the fourth quarter was a nutty 83-yard fumble return touchdown by Luke Batton which involved a multitude of broken tackles.

WMU had six turnovers on the day. yep.

At some point Kent State will get the national attention coming to them. That may happen next week when they travel to undefeated Rutgers.
