Kent State kicks off 'comic strip' campaign

KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Dri Archer has cartoonish speed. The Road Runner might not be able to outrun Kent State's do-it-all running back. So perhaps it's fitting that the school has kicked off a unique Heisman Trophy campaign to promote the lightning-fast Archer that includes a comic strip depicting him as a college football superhero. "The Archer" debuted Wednesday...

Video: Kent State kicker hits nothing but net with trick kick

A couple of weeks ago, we saw Texas A&M Aggies QB Johnny Manzeil join Dude Perfect and pull of a bunch of trick throws. Just about everything he did was impressive, but not nearly as impressive as what Kent State kicker Freddy Cortez pulled off on the basketball court.

Bowl projections: Kent State sneaky BCS Buster

Even though there is now more certainty about the BCS Championship, there are still plenty of BCS Bowl berths up for grabs. After Louisiana Tech lost to Utah State in week 12, the hope of a BCS Buster looked to be over, but then Kent State snuck up on the BCS. If the Golden Flashes win on Friday, the BCS Bowls could look a little awkward. Florida could end up playing Rutgers or...

Watch Kent State’s Andre Parker return a punt the wrong way (VIDEO)

Yeah, we know it’s not the NFL, but this is about as bone-headed a play as you’ll ever see on the football field, so we had to share. From opening night of the college football season, watch Kent State linebacker Andre Parker alertly scoop up a muffed punt return, and return it 58-yards … in the wrong direction: Almost as awesome is that two players from the opposing punt...

Kent State player returns fumble the wrong way
