Conference Championship Summaries Kent State 31 - Ball State 10 Kent State brings home a Conference Championship! Just hours after announcing that he had received an offer from CMU to coach there next season, Omnibird gathered his team and got them focused for the task at hand. Kent State had to move away from their explosive power attack because QB Morgan was very erratic on his throws. Kent State ran the ball 49 times for 190yds and 3 TDs. The defense once again stepped up, only allowing 249yds total and racking up 2 INTs. The most impressive stat of the game: Kent State held Ball State to 2 of 10 on 3rd down conversions... and 1 of 4 on 4th down.
