Kent State Team News
The Kent State Golden Flashes gave up 35.5 points per game in the last season. This is surely a bad defense. Also, in their games, they were among the world defenses. However, when you see statistically, they are somewhat better than the Illinois Fighting Illini. So, if their defense is better than Illini, they stand some chance of stopping a winning Illini rush.
The team will struggle because they have mostly young players and their defenses are quite weak. But let’s see what kind of a game they give us against the Illini today.
Illinois Team News
The Fighting Illini had the misfortune of ending the last season with a disappointing 10 losing streak. The Kent State Golden Flashes are not a strong opponent.

The Illinois team is especially good in winning at home. The fans can only hope if they can give it all they have and win at home again.
So, the basic overview is that this game is not going to be difficult for the Illinois Fighting Illini. They will have it easy and they can easily break into the Kent State Golden Flashes offense. Once they are in, they will be able to score in quick successions, making the team win without losing much.
