The Bulls had an opportunity to tie it in the fourth, but Alex McNulty missed a field goal, and it kept the score at 41-38. Kent State turned around and scored another TD to put them up by 10.
UB had a few other opportunities, but McNulty missed another field goal on the next drive, and Kyle Vantrease threw a touchdown on the Bulls’ following drive. Kent State held on from there to win it 48-38.
The Bulls move to 2-4 on the season and 0-2 in conference play. They face Ohio next Saturday at noon at home.
