With a week to go before season kickoff, we felt it wasn't too early to start thinking about the Alabama Crimson Tide's first opponent, the Kent State Flying Muffins.
See? You probably had to read that twice before you remembered that the real mascot name for Kent State is the Golden Flashes.
There are things you may not know about the Tide's Week 1 foe.
For example, the band Devo, Lou Holtz, Drew Carey, Arsenio Hall and rocker Joe Walsh all call Kent State their alma mater.
But we're here to give you some information about the KSU football program and to provide all you need to know before the college football season kicks off.
Here then, meet the Flying Muff—er, Golden Flashes.
