WASHINGTON – Coach Mike London and the Howard Football team face another FBS opponent in the Kent State Golden Flashes. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
Fans will have the opportunity to follow all the action via ESPN3.
Furthermore, the Bison Family will get a chance to listen to the game live with Trevin A. Jones and Tiffany Hoyd. Tune in to the WHBC96.3HD3; SiriusXM Channel 142; or Resident Network Channel 51 for all Bison’s football coverage.
Last Saturday (Sept. 2), the Bison stunned FBS foe UNLV with a 43-40 victory in front of 15,000 fans at Sam Boyd Stadium.
With this victory, Howard picked up its first season opening win in more than a decade, as well as their first victory over an FBS opponent in program history.
According to ESPN, the victory over UNLV has been deemed the biggest upset in college football history.
Kent State (0-1) enters Saturday’s contest looking to rebound from last week’s loss at Clemson, 56-3. With Paul Haynes recently announcing a medical leave of absence, offensive coordinator Don Treadwell has taken over as interim head coach for the second consecutive week. Kent State returned 53 letter winners, including three All-MAC selections on defense.
For HU (1-0), they look to keep the momentum going as they inch closer to their home opener against Bethune-Cookman (Sept. 23). The duo of freshman Caylin Newton and senior running back Anthony Philyaw spearhead the Bison’s ground attack. Defensively, Leland Lassiter and Tye Freeland look to keep the Golden Flashes out-of-rhythm offensively.
On Sept. 16, Howard goes to Coach London’s alma mater, Richmond, for their final test before conference play. Game-time is scheduled for 2 p.m.
