The Kent State Golden Flashes and Maryland Terrapins face off on Saturday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Byrd Stadium. 

Kent State has played a tough schedule to start the season and they sit with a 1-2 record. Kent State’s two losses came against Texas A&M and Iowa, and in those two games they combined to score 17 points. The one win came against VMI and in that game they scored 60 points. Under center for Kent State is Dustin Crum and on the season he has thrown for 454 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. In the last game against Iowa the defense gave up 30 points and if they want to win this game, the defense is going to need to be a whole lot better. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Maryland Terrapins who have gotten out to a fast start to their season winning each of their first three games. In the last game against Illinois, they didn’t cover the spread, but they still won 20-17. Taulia Tagovailoa is the star of this team and he has thrown for 956 yards and seven touchdowns. He hasn’t used his feet as much this season but that is still a weapon with his feet. Maryland looks to have an improved offense this year, and it’s going to be important the defense is good.

Kent State is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games. Maryland is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games as a home favorite. The over is 6-2 in Kent State’s last eight games as an underdog. The under is 5-1 in Maryland’s last six games overall.

Maryland’s defense is much improved this year, and Kent State’s offense is going to really struggle to score. Kent State only scored seven points against Iowa and they won’t get above that number. I also don’t expect Maryland’s offense to be putting up 50 or 60 points in this game. Back the under.
