11/09/16 - Unbeaten Western Michigan rallies past Kent State...Western Michigan is known for its offense, which averages more than 500 yards per game. The Broncos' undefeated season might have been saved by their defense, though. The No. 21 Broncos used the power of two 100-yard rushers and momentum from a fourth-quarter safety to remain unbeaten and stay in the chase for a big bowl with a 37-21 victory at Kent State in a Mid-American Conference game on a rainy Tuesday night in Kent, Ohio. "I think the safety was really the turning point," Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck said. "Our defense made a huge play. We talked to them right before they went out - championship teams find a way to make plays on defense."
The Broncos (10-0, 6-0 MAC) were in early trouble, falling behind 14-0, then scoring 21 unanswered points before the upset-minded Golden Flashes (3-7, 2-4) tied the game at 21 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Kent State then forced Western Michigan to punt, but James Coleman's 53-yarder was downed at the 1. On the next play, linebacker Robert Spillane tackled running back Justin Rankin in the end zone for a 23-21 lead with 12:04 to go. Western Michigan followed up with a touchdown drive, capped by a 19-yard run from running back Jarvion Franklin. Running back Fabian Johnson added another rushing touchdown with four minutes left. Franklin carried 31 times for 134 yards. Johnson had 19 rushes for 125 yards. Western Michigan gained 329 yards on the ground. - The Sports Xchange
