OUR PREDICTION: One of two things will happen on Saturday: Either the Cardinals will come out angry or flat following their loss to Clemson last week. I'm banking on the former and thus, love the over. Kent State doesn't have Clemson's defensive line and won't have an answer for Lamar Jackson. The over is 6-1 in the Cardinals' last seven games in September, is 5-2 in the Golden Flashes' last seven games overall, and is 10-4 when Jackson and Co. play on fieldturf.
