It's a big MAC East match-up for both teams as Miami heads to Kent on a three-game losing streak while the Flashes are coming off of a double-overtime loss to Marshall last week. Kent State brings in a stout defense to its homecoming that is eighth in the country in yards allowed while the RedHawks would like to replicate the offensive success they had against Cincinnati, when they had 545 yards of total offense.

Players to Watch
Colin Reardon (QB, Kent State): Reardon has been efficient as the signal caller for the Flashes as he has thrown for 550 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions. He might have some opportunities down the field against the RedHawks as they have allowed 1,153 yards passing so far this season.
Terence Waugh (DL, Kent State): The MAC's leading sack artist with 6.5 this season, Waugh is part of a defensive unit that is tied for sixth in the nation in sacks with 14. He goes up against an offensive line that has only allowed six sacks so far despite Miami's offensive struggles, so it'll be interesting to see who wins the battle up front.
Chris Hudson (WR, Miami): A match-up nightmare at 6'6", Hudson was the lone bright spot against Western Kentucky as he caught four balls for 64 yards and a score. Hudson and three other RedHawk receivers average over 16 yards per catch, but it will interesting to see how they maintain their success against the defense of the Flashes.
Paul Moses (LB, Miami): Moses has made some plays in his transition from running back to linebacker as he is second on the team in tackles with 32 total tackles as well as three sacks and a forced fumble. He, along with the rest of the defense, is going to have to make some plays against Kent's offense in order to give their own offense a chance against KSU's defense.
