After a hard-fought loss to UCF, the Penn State Nittany Lions will look to bounce back this week when the Golden Flashes of Kent State come to town. With the Big Ten season looming, there are some issues that need to be addressed and Kent State serves as a prime opponent for the job.
Kent State is coming off of lopsided losses to LSU and Bowling Green. Their only win came in Week 1 when they defeated Liberty by a score of 17-10. Making matters worse, the Flashes will likely be without their best player, Dri Archer.
The last time these two faced off was in 2010, when Penn State came away with a 24-0 win with Rob Bolden at the helm. The 2013 version probably won't be as close.
