The football team defeated Kent State, 47-13, for its ninth straight win. Freshman running back Matt Brown replaced injured back Bernard Pierce and ran for 156 yards and two touchdowns. Friday’s game against Ohio will determine the MAC East.
The Owls survived a fourth-quarter comeback from Miami (Ohio) to win their seventh straight game. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Chester Stewart started under center, but the formula remained the same, handing off to freshman Bernard Pierce.
Chester Stewart outplayed Vaughn Charlton at Cherry & White Day, but neither quarterback was particularly impressive in the spring practice game. No decision will be made on the Owls’ starting signal-caller until practice picks up again in August.
