Golden Flashes Down Eastern Michigan in Football Opener

Kent State picked up right where it left off at the end of last season -- with a win.

The Golden Flashes defeated Eastern Michigan 27-23 Wednesday evening at Dix Stadium.

The game marked the season opener for both teams as the Mid-American Conference season was delayed due to the pandemic. 

The win marks the first time Kent State has played a game since last December’s Frisco Bowl victory over Utah State.
