Predictions For Betting On Bowl – Hazell Looks To Lead Kent State To First Bowl Win In Final Game

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/27/2012 6:00:27 PM

The end of the season was somewhat of a disappointment for the 25th-ranked Kent State Golden Flashes, which lost the MAC Championship game in double-overtime against the Northern Illinois Huskies and failed to capitalize on the chance to clinch a spot in a BCS Bowl game. The consolation prize for Golden Flashes is a trip to the Bowl to face the Arkansas State Red Wolves, as head coach Darrell Hazell looks to close out his time at Kent State with the first bowl win in school history. It won’t be easy against an Arkansas State team that reeled off seven-straight sports betting wins following a 2-3 start to win the Sun Belt Conference, but Hazell is confident in his team.

This game will mark the first bowl for the Kent State program in 40 seasons, and that’s something to get excited about regardless of the situation. Hazell would like nothing more than to finish his time with the Golden Flashes by doing something no coach before him has, before making the trip to Purdue where he will take over next season.

The biggest obstacle for Kent State could be mental, as they look to shake off the disappointment after having their 10-game win streak come to an end in the MAC Championship. A double-overtime loss is nothing to be ashamed of, and Hazell will undoubtedly have his team motivated for redemption. Running backs Dri Archer and Trayion Durham combined for 200 yards per game on the ground this season to lead a rushing attack that ranked 16th in the country, and you won’t see Hazell switch up the game plan too much before this contest.

The Red Wolves are also in the midst of a coaching change, with Gus Malzahn set to take over Auburn following this season. Arkansas State has hired former Texas co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin to replace Malzahn, but for now they will work with what has gotten them here in the first place. Ryan Aplin threw for 10,545 yards and will finish his career as the all-time leading passer in Sun Belt history, and also ran for 1,761 yards and 31 rushing scores this season. Running back David Oku was second in the conference with 1,024 rushing yards, and also led the Sun Belt with 15 rushing scores.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Kent State undoubtedly has the weapons to get the job done, and there will be plenty of emotion heading in to Hazell’s final game on the Golden Flashes’ sideline. Arkansas State is not an easy opponent to beat, but even if Kent State falls short they should be able to cover the online betting number in what projects to be an intense battle all the way to the final whistle.
