The Kent State Golden Flashes have announced their 2012 and 2013 non-conference football schedules. The list of opponents includes four teams from BCS conferences.
Kent State opens the 2012 season at home against Towson on August 30, a team they have never faced before. Three tough road games follow: at Kentucky (09/08), at Rutgers (09/15) and at Army (10/13). KSU is 0-6 against Kentucky and 0-2 against both Rutgers and Army.
The Golden Flashes open the 2014 season at home against Liberty on August 29. In 2004, KSU beat Liberty 38-10 in their first and only meeting. And just like 2013, Kent hits the road for three straight games. They play at Clemson (09/14), at Penn State (09/21) and at South Alabama (10/19).
KSU is 0-3 against Penn State. They have never face the Clemson Tigers and will play their first game against the South Alabama Jaguars in 2011.
