In a game from NCAAF Week 3, we will see Kent State at Penn State.
The Kent State Golden Flashes haven’t won a game on the road since 2016. It seems that this won’t happen this time as well since they are a 34-point underdog. Woody Barrett is completing 60.3 percent of his passes for 426 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. Justin Rankin is probably their best offensive player who is moving the sticks with his running game. He has 199 yards and one touchdown so far. Kent State are allowing 22.5 points and 369.5 yards per game.
The Penn State Nittany Lions haven’t lost a home game since November of 2015 and this run will clearly continue on Saturday. Trace McSorley is only completing 52% of his passes but that is good enough for three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Defensively, Penn State are allowing 22 points and 375.5 yards per game.
The Kent State Golden Flashes had some abysmal performances on the road in recent years and they always performed very badly against the spread. Even though they blew out Howards, I still don’t think that they are ready for to cover the spread this time.
