Kent State takes on Georgia

Coming off of convincing victories against No.11 Oregon and Samford in weeks 1 and 2, Georgia moved to No. 1 in the AP poll. Georgia leapfrogged Alabama who had a nail-biting victory vs Texas.

With already two top 25 wins, the defending national champions reminded everyone they are still a good football team.

Kent State is coming off its first win of the season after playing two ranked opponents to start the season.


Georgia proved their legitimacy even further with a 48-7 blowout win over SEC rival South Carolina in week 3.  Quarterback Stetson Bennet IV completed 16 of 23 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns.

It’s no secret that Georgia has the best tight-end room in the country. Standout Brock Bowers had a monster game hauling in five catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran one touchdown in.

Georgia’s defense looks just as good as its offense. They’ve only given up 10 points in their combined three games this season. Despite losing nine defensive players to the NFL draft, Georgia reloaded quickly and looks just as strong (if not stronger) than last year.


Kent State

The Golden Flashes didn’t give themselves an easy start to the season. Georgia will be their third ranked in opponent in four weeks as they look to pull off an improbable upset.

Vegas lists Kent State as 42 point underdogs heading into Saturday.

Kent State grabbed their first win of the season in a 63-10 blowout victory over FCS school Long Island University. The Golden Flashes did most of their damage on the ground, rushing for 353 yards and scoring five touchdowns as a team.

Game Details

The Kent State Golden Flashes will head to Athens to take on the No.1 Georgia Bulldogs.

Kickoff is set for noon on Saturday, September 24 on ESPN+ and SEC Network+.
