    Sitting just on the outskirts of the rankings, Kent State would hope to avoid a hangover effect against North Carolina after shocking the nation against Ohio St last week. However, this would prove difficult considering the heavy hangover coach JQwon would be fighting through. Everything started off strong for the Golden Flashes and quarterback Cedric McCloud started off on fire as Kent St jumped to a 17-7 lead. That's when the hangover took full effect as Kent St went ice cold on offense and couldn't get a stop defensively as the Tar Heels pounded the ball down the field.

    Before Kent State could catch their breath, North Carolina had reeled off 27 straight points and took a 34-17 lead with just over 6 minutes left in the game. In an attempt to spark the offense, McCloud was pulled in favor of backup Mark Johnson. Johnson came in and propelled the offense down the field quickly and efficiently for a quick touchdown.

    Then the Golden Flashes would come up with a huge interception to get the ball back and Johnson would fire for another quick score to cut it to 34-31. After another defensive stop, Mark Johnson would get the ball back with a chance to complete the rally, but his throws became erratic and facing a 4th and 10, coach JQwon decided to go back to the starter, McCloud. And McCloud delivered firing a strike to #5 receiver, the small, white, Drew Hill for 17 yards and a first down. A few plays later, McCloud would finish the rally with a toucdown pass to win it 38-34 and Kent St improves to 6-0.

    For whatever reason, this game really wasn't ever a contest. The opening play of the game, WKU ran a PA and threw it deep to wide open freshman phenom Shaun Griffin for an easy 6. Idaho freshman QB Jim Rice came right back with a passing TD of his own. WKU got another quick 6 from back up RB Greene using the WildTopper formation. All-Nikpin MLB Jalen Fields then ripped the ball from Jim Rice's hands and the DLine fell on it. In the redzone and with all the momentum, 6'7 288 lb TE Ed Hazelett tossed an Idaho LB to the inside like a sack of potatoes (one might even say like a sack of potato magic) before stepping away for an out route TD. The rest of the 2nd half, Idaho could only kick FGs while WK tacked on another 7 and Idaho couldn't do much more in the 2nd half.

    James Franklin had another nice day completing 13 of 19 for 266, 3 TDs and 1 INT helping WKU convert 86% of 3rd downs.

    First Quarter
    07:46 TD Western Kentucky Shaun Griffin WR #82 74 yard pass from James Franklin QB #1

    03:24 TD Idaho Zach Berry WR #82 15 yard pass from Jim Rice QB #17

    Third Quarter

    JQwon's weekly predictions:

    So far the only game I've gotten wrong was picking Idaho to beat ULL. Clearly I won't make that mistake again as Idaho is playing at a pathetic level right now. So I obviously would have taken WKU over Idaho this week, but since they already played, I'll leave that one out. I'm not going to go in depth on these cuz I'm about to crash but here's my predictions.

    ULaLa 52 Arkansas St- 42

    UL Monroe- 38 Eastern Michigan 17

    Western Michigan 45 MTSU- 42

    Utah St- 42 UAB- 28

    Utah State Wins Thanks to 5 Field Goals


    The Utah State Aggies won in an unusally low scoring C-USA game. Utah State' Josh Thompson led the way kicking 5 field goals. Utah State played without starting qurterback Dennis Brewster. Back-up transfer from Idaho, Marcus Butler, filled in nicely throwing 14-25 for 300+ yards, with no TDs or INTs.

    UAB took an early 7-0 lead on the first drive, but Utah State would respond kicking 3 field goals and a TD to take a 16-7 lead at the half. UAB cut the lead to 6 in the 3rd quarter, but the Aggies responded with another field goal to extend the lead to 9. With under 4 minutes to go, UAB had a chance to make it a one possession lead, but were stopped on 4th down. USU drove down field and kicked the 5th field goal to seal the game at 22-10.

    Kicker Josh Thompson was named player of the game. The Aggies offense moved the ball successfully without starting QB Brewster, but struggled inside the red zone, settling for field goals.

    Utah State improves to 3-2 with the win. USU returns home for a game against UL Monroe. Despite 2 early conference losses, the Aggies may have an opportunity to win the West division by winning the 4 remaining conference games.

    1st Quarter
    UAB: Williams 5 yard TD run

    USU: Thompson 44 yd FG

    2nd Quarter
    USU: Thompson FG
    USU: Freeman 5 yard TD run
    USU: Thompson FG

    3rd Quarter

    UAB: FG

    4th Quarter
    USU: Thompson FG
    USU: Thompson FG

    Louisiana Lafayette Ragin'Cajuns @ Arkansas State Red Wolves
    Red Wolves run away in 2nd half to beat down ULL
    Well after an 0-3 start Arkansas State is back on track after getting the mild upset against Louisiana Lafayette, who played well in the 1st half but seemed to sputter at times on offense down the stretch and were unable to stop the Red Wolves rushing attack. Freshman QB Jimmy Bell only threw the ball 4 times the whole game, but that was because Arkansas State was too busy averaging 11.5 yards per carry on 41 rushing attempts to care about throwing it.​
    The first 7 possessions saw somebody getting into the endzone, with the score at the end of the first quarter 21-21. But in the 2nd quarter Arkansas State got the stop they needed and were able to pull away a little bit by half, going into the break up 38-28. Arkansas State scored on the opening possession of the 3rd quarter, then at the end of the quarter got a huge interception at midfield that allowed them to score another touchdown and go up 59-35 early in the 4th quarter. Both teams scored again before the game was over, but Arkansas State had this win in their back pocket toward the end of the 3rd quarter.​
    The Red Wolves had no turnovers, and punted only once, while racking up 471 rushing yards and wreaking havoc on the Ragin' Cajuns front 7.​
    Jakhari Gore had 28 carries for 328 yards, and 4TDs, while backup Frankie Jackson had 9 carries for 135 yards and 3TDs rushing, while also returning a kickoff for a TD in the 2nd quarter. Emile Joseph, QB for ULL, had 380 passing yards and 4TDs to lead the Ragin' Cajuns.​

    #8 Western Michigan 48
    Mid Tenn State 28
    The Broncos continued the tradition of beating MTSU improving to 4-0 in 4 years against them and improve their winning streak to 20 games in a row. On MTSU starting drive things went sour as CB Lewis Toler jumped an out route and took it back 33 yards to begin the first half onslaught. After forcing a punt Western Michigan was able to drive down the field quickly eating up big chunks of yards on the ground and Robert Bolden ran it in from 5 yards out to take a 14-0 leading. On MTSU next drive DE Kyle Lark would drop back into coverage and make a interception on a crossing route deep in MTSU territory. The drive would stall but WMU was cruising and up 17-0.​
    In the second quarter a small scoring drought occurred as both teams punted the ball away. Robert Bolden was able to find the end zone again when he was hit by a corner blitzed but escaped the tackle and scampered for a 15 yard score(captured above). MTSU was able to answer in nearly 30 seconds when backup QB Ryan Rosenvall found HB Tim Williams out of the backfield. He was able to break one tackle and score from 48 yards out putting MTSU on the board but trailing 7-24. MTSU left way to much time on the clock though as WMU quickly marched down and scored with :55 in the half on a Robert Bolden 10 yard scramble up the middle to give WMU a 7-31 lead at the half.​
    The third quarter was a defensive struggle as both teams exchanged punts but WMU found the end zone with 2:15 to play on Robert Bolden's 4th TD of the day a 1 yard option keeper putting WMU ahead 38-7 and completely in control.​
    In the 4th quarter MTSU finally began their push. They had 7 and goal plays and punched it in after a INT on 3rd and goal but a strip by the QB at the 8 led to them maintaining possession and a fresh set of downs. Starting QB Mark Phillips found go to receiver Mark Phillips on 4th and goal when he threaded the coverage and Phillips was able to hang on despite a big hit. MTSU onside kicked it but WMU recovered and was able to get a first down and kick a 34 yard FG to push the score to 41-14. MTSU drove down again and on 3rd and goal ran a QB draw with Phillips scoring from 3 yards out to bring the score to 41-21. Another failed onside kick led to a short field for WMU and Tevin Drake took a goal line toss in from 3 yards out to give WMU a 48-21 lead. MTSU final valiant effort was another QB draw at the GL to narrow the gap to 20 points at a 48-28 final.​
    Players of the game on both sides were the QB's as Robert Bolden went 6/11 for 126 yards and had 8 carries for 81 yards and 4 TDs. Mark Phillips went 34/50 for 397 yards but had 4 interceptions to only 1 TD.​
