    The Golden Flash traveled to Massachusetts to face Coach OnIowa and his UMASS Minutemen in a game were both teams were looking to move past early season tough losses to higher ranked teams. Kent State drew first blood when their 11 play drive stalled out and they settled for a 31 yard FG. But the lead was short lived as UMass's CB Kirk Nelms returned the kickoff 100 yards for a TD and a 7-3 lead. But the Golden Flash responded quickly when HB Robert Hollomon got loose on a 65 yard TD run and as the 1st Qtr ended Kent State held a 10-7 lead. In the 2nd Qtr UMass assumed control as the Golden Flashes could not stop the running or the passing from the Minutemen and watch as they fell behind 21-10 late in the half. But Kent State struck quickly after a long pass to put them in scoring position the Golden Flash connected on a 23 yard TD in the corner of the end zone to pull with 21-17 with less than a minute to go. But the Minutemen would not have that and quickly responded and scored on a 5 yard TD pass with 7 seconds remaining to push the lead back to 28-17 at the half. In the 3rd Qtr the Kent State defense stiffened and slowed the UMass while scoring 10 point to pull with 28-27 going into the final Qtr. In the final period the Golden Flashes appeared to have thrown the game away when trailing by a point forced a UMass punt. But to the horror of the Kent State coaching staff they watched as 2 different Golden Flash players picked up the football only to fumble it away with UMass making the final recovery. UMass converted the gift into points and extended their lead to 35-27. But the Golden Flash came right back and scored on a 45 yard TD pass and after converting on the 2 point conversion Kent State had tied the game at 35-35. The Golden Flash defense stiffened and got the ball back for the offense with about 3 minutes remaining. The Golden Flash began a time consuming drive looking to get into FG range but after several key 3rd down conversions the Gold Flash scored on a 4 yard TD run with 38 seconds left. Any shot at overtime was prevented when Kent State got an interception on a tipped pass and ran out the clock to earn a hard fought 42-35 win.
    Great Game by OnIowa and yet another classic in our series of games.
