The big game in the NCAA South Regional semifinals tonight at Rupp Arena is the matchup between defending national champion Duke and a battle-tested Indiana squad. But the most intriguing participant is the surprising team from Kent State. The Golden Flashes, who, with 20 straight victories, own the nation's longest winning streak, will meet third-seeded Pittsburgh in the second game of the doubleheader. The matchup pits teams with identical 29-5 records, both of which have already exceeded all expectations.

One can sense the awe in Michael Fay's voice as he talks about Penn State and Beaver Stadium and the hope as he recounts the story of waiting a few years ago for someone on the Nittany Lions' coaching staff to make a recruiting call to him. The call never came, and the 6-foot-4, 294-pound junior from Allentown will line up at left guard for Kent State when it plays the Lions on Saturday. Still, Fay holds no grudge and eagerly awaits the opportunity to step on the green grass before more than 100,000 spectators.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - All the attention was on Penn State's new hurry-up offense in the opening game of the 2016 season, but the Nittany Lions defense played a key roll in their 33-13 victory over Kent State on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Playing its opening game at home for the first time since 2012, Penn State (1-0) picked up three turnovers, one a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown by sophomore cornerback Amani Oruwariye early in the third quarter. A fumble recovery and return by free safety Marcus Allen set up Saquon Barkley's 7-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

It hasn't been easy for Kent State coach Paul Haynes to get ready for his team's season opener this Saturday at Penn State. The only game film that exists of Trace McSorley, the Nittany Lions' new starting quarterback, comes from last season's TaxSlayer Bowl, and the team has scrapped that offense in favor of a new no-huddle attack. Haynes tried taping the telecast of the Blue-White Game in April to catch some of the new offense, but "you can barely see a lot of the things that happened," he said.

The underdog Kent State basketball team just kept believing and just kept playing all the way to the bitter end last night in the NCAA South Regional final at Rupp Arena. The only problem for the Golden Flashes was that Indiana did likewise, and so the Hoosiers will move on to the Final Four next weekend in Atlanta. Indiana, the fifth seed, stunned 10th-seeded Kent State with a barrage of three-pointers - hitting its first eight and 15 of 19 overall - on its way to an 81-69 victory.

Ordinarily, the Temple football team would have little to play for in mid-November. But there is something different about this year. They are learning about a game of inches. Last night was another game of inches as the Owls fell to Kent State, 41-38, at Dix Stadium. It was the Owls' fifth loss this season by six points or fewer. "It's tough," senior quarterback Adam DiMichele said. "We have had so many close games this year, but we just don't seem to have that killer instinct just yet. " Temple (3-7, 2-4 Mid-American Conference)

With two regular-season football games remaining, Temple would move a step closer to the Mid-American Conference's Eastern Division title - and perhaps win it - by defeating Kent State today at Lincoln Financial Field. On the strength of the team's first eight-game winning streak since 1973, Temple enters the contest 8-2 overall and 6-0 in the division, where the Owls have sole possession of first place. Kent State (5-5, 4-2) is still in the race, and Ohio (7-3, 5-1) and Bowling Green (5-5, 4-2)

This is an important football game that Temple's involved in Friday. So what else is new? The Owls need to win the Mid-American Conference East Division contest to increase their chances for a bowl appearance. Kent State has the same goal, with the added incentive of gaining its first bowl bid since 1972. "With this game coming up being senior day, we are going to approach it like it is a playoff game," said Temple cornerback Kee-ayre Griffin, one of 19 seniors playing in their final regular-season game at Lincoln Financial Field.

TEMPLE'S FIVE seniors from last season's team are playing professionally in China, Japan, Germany, Luxembourg and Ukraine. This team's only senior is Dalton Pepper. The good news is that the young Owls were good enough to earn big leads against Penn on Saturday at the Palestra and Kent State last night at the Liacouras Center. The unsurprising news is they could not hold the lead either time. It worked out in the end against the Quakers, but did not work down the stretch against the Golden Flashes.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The rain poured down and the pristine green grass of Beaver Stadium became slippery, but that didn't stop Penn State's relentless three-headed running-back crew. With Christian Hackenberg struggling for the first time as a college quarterback, the Nittany Lions relied on Zach Zwinak, Akeel Lynch, and Bill Belton for 278 of their 287 rushing yards and all four touchdowns in a 34-0 victory over Kent State. The Lions defense, burned for 507 total yards in a loss the previous week to Central Florida, righted itself by holding the Golden Flashes (1-3)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State's young cornerbacks impressed in their first two games as new starters before coming back to earth last week with a clunk against Central Florida. Sophomores Jordan Lucas and Trevor Williams appeared to be a step slow or leaning the wrong way the majority of the time whenever quarterback Blake Bortles threw the football in their direction to one of several talented receivers. The proof showed on the scoreboard: UCF 34, Penn State 31. But it's a new week for the Lions on Saturday at Beaver Stadium with Kent State (1-2)

KENT, Ohio - Scootie Randall is eager to make up for lost time. The senior scored a career-high 31 points to lead Temple to an 80-66 victory over Kent State on Tuesday in his first game in 20 months. Randall missed all last season with a left-knee injury when the Owls went 24-8 and to the NCAA Tournament for the fifth consecutive year under coach Fran Dunphy. "This is my last year and I want to lead these guys," Randall said. "My teammates just found me with the ball and I thank them.

KENT, Ohio - Chris Fouch scored 24 points, but Drexel's season opener did not go as planned. The Dragons, coming off a school-record 29 wins, shot poorly and made key mistakes at critical times in a 66-62 overtime loss at Kent State on Friday night. "Their young guys did what they are supposed to do and our old guys didn't," Dragons coach Bruiser Flint said. "They came to play with toughness. We were a little selfish. " Fouch was 0 for 6 from the field in overtime until he hit a three-pointer to tie it at 62 with 19 seconds left.

The dream of an undefeated season and a hopeful shot to play for a national title is over for No. 18 Rutgers after an upset loss at home to Kent State. Everything else is still in place. The nonconference loss won't deny the Scarlet Knights a chance at the Big East Conference regular-season title and a BCS bowl bid. That is what their sights are set on now, following the stunning 35-23 defeat by the Golden Flashes on Saturday in Piscataway, N.J. "This is a lump in the road," Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene said.
