Arkansas State 17, Kent State 13 -- Final

Arkansas State came out with a victory here in a very hard fought game. The Red Wolves had a little too much defense for Kent State.

It was the first ever victory over a ranked team for Arkansas State since joining the FBS level in 1992.

Senior quarterback Ryan Aplin had an outstanding game for Arkansas State, throwing for 213 yards and a touchdown on 21 of 30. 

A knee injury to Kent State running back Dri Archer in the middle of the third quarter certainly limited what Kent State could do on offense.

Here are game grades for both teams.

Who is ready for the BCS National Championship after that?
