    The Kent State offense continued it recent trend of bailing out the Golden Flash defense as they outscored Western Michigan 52-39 and earned their 2nd conference win on the year. The two teams battled to a virtual tie in the first quarter with the only difference being a missed extra point by WMU. But no one was expecting what happened next as the two teams exploded for 41 combined points in the 2nd quarter. For some reason the WMU defense decided to try their hand at some zero coverage and press coverage. Doing this opening up the deep pass and Kent State did not fail to capitalize as they struck for a 78 and 69 yard TD passes along with a beautiful 93 yard kick off return for a TD. But WMU would not be phased as they continued to grind it down the field and answered the Golden Flashes with a 12 yard and 72 yard TD strikes. WMU also countered the Kent State kickoff return with a 30 yard pick 6 and the teams went to the locker room at the half with Kent State leading 28-26. Things settled in during the 3rd quarter after WMU moved away from the press coverage after the Golden Flashes extended their lead to 35-26 on a 62 yard TD pass. After holding Kent State to a FG early in the 4rd quarter WMU made a furious comeback and retook the lead with less than 2 minutes remaining after connecting on a 1 yard pass to the TE. But the lead would not last long when WMU had a break down in the secondary and Tyshon Goode went uncovered when the WMU DBs jumped the underneath routes and Spencer Keith found him for a 77 yard TD to reclaim the lead for Kent State. But there would be not be another WMU comeback as the Golden Flash LB Luke Batton picked off a pass and returned it WMU 7 yard line. Two plays later Trayion Durham slammed in from 2 yards out and Kent State pulled out another win.
    Spencer Keith continues to learn and develop with the air raid system as he was 17-23 for 455 yards and 4 TDs, but he still has a tendency to force things as he threw 2 more picks. Kent State will have the week off for week 9 as they prepare for their trip to Akron in week 10.
