In The Region:

The Kent State football team is preparing to head to Michigan, where it hopes a Mid American Conference championship will cap an 11-1 regular season record. 

And the team is guaranteed an invitation to a bowl game after that – the team’s first in 40 years.

The season has included the team’s first win over a ranked opponent, the first time the team has gone undefeated in conference play and the first time the team has won 10-straight games. 

Darrell Hazell is the head coach. At Tuesday’s final practice before Friday’s championship game, he said the recent attention has been great for the program and the student-athletes.

“There’s a big buzz around campus and the community and around northeastern Ohio. [I] get emails every single day of people congratulating our guys – which they deserve it. They’ve worked hard to put themselves in this position."

 The MAC Championship game begins at 7 p.m. Friday in Ford Field in Detroit, and will be televised on ESPN 2.
