The Kent State Golden Flashes (1-8) host the Bowling Green State Falcons (5-4) on Wednesday night in a battle of two MAC schools. Kent State lost their sixth consecutive game last week, falling to Akron 31-27. They put up a fight, but they’re still searching for their first conference win (0-5). BGSU is coming off of a 24-21 win over Ball State, and now they’ll head back on the road. The Golden Flashes have won each of the past five head-to-head meetings dating back to 2018, but their roster is very different now, so a lot has changed.
Will the Falcons stay hot, or will the Golden Flashes win their first conference matchup?
𝗣𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪: Bowling Green heads to Kent State on Wednesday night for MACtion. It is the 91st meeting between the Falcons and Golden Flashes as BGSU has not faced any program as much as it has faced Kent State 🏈#ToTheMoon 🟠🟤

Bowling Green’s defense has carried them to a 5-4 record, meanwhile their offense has lagged behind. The Falcons are facing a really weak team, but it is their conference rivals, which is always important to note. On the road, they’re just 2-3, but they have covered three of their past four road games. Kent State has been the underdog in every game besides one this year, and they didn’t cover their last two home contests. Back the Falcons to assert their dominance here as the Golden Flashes should struggle to put up points.
Bowling Green -8.5 (-110)
