No. 25 Kent State shooting for MAC title game

Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Kent State's second-year head coach Darrell Hazell is downplaying his team's return to the rankings this week. That's because there's a bigger prize at stake right now.

The No. 25 Golden Flashes can clinch a spot in its first Mid-American Conference title game with a victory over Bowling Green on Saturday.

Kent State (9-1, 6-0 MAC) already has its first winning season in 11 years.

The Flashes have also set a set a school record for most wins in a season.

But a loss to Bowling Green (7-3, 5-1) would give the Falcons the inside track to the MAC East Division title and the league championship game in Detroit.

Kent State has 1 of the top rushing offenses in the nation with two backs who've topped 1,000 yards this season.
