Three keys: Injuries to the quarterback position have forced Haynes and his staff to pull Colin Reardon, their former QB from the wide receiver spot he transitioned, to fill the hole.  The Zips need to take advantage of that…The Zips defense has to be able to stop the run to make the Kent State offense one dimensional…The offense, which averages close to 40 points per game, must keep doing what they do so well, much of that involves getting the ball to their receivers.
