A FEW OTHER NOTES THAT I FORGOT YESTERDAY
I am not sure what genius decided it would be intelligent to place the Akron student section in the endzone, but it was cleary a mistake.
Akron quarterback Chris Jacquemain and coach J.D. Brookhart both said it was easy to pick that end for the second over time.
While the Flash fans sat in the middle of the stands behind the bench with zero influence on the game; The Zips fans turned Kent State's home field advantage against them.
Running back Jacquise Terry and tight end Justin Thompson, both true freshmen, picked up their first career touchdowns in Saturday's game.
Terry has been showing great promise for four weeks now as he is averaging 5.2 yards a carry so far this season. He has rushed 30 times for 157 yards overall.
Thompson's redshirt was recently burned three weeks ago after the injury to Jameson Konz was determined to be season ending. His one yard touchdown reception in the first half Saturday was also his first career catch. Martin said Thompson brings a lot of athleticism to the position and can do a lot of things he expected out of Konz this year i.e. stretching defenses and being a security valve.
