AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Carlton Jackson ran for a touchdown and passed for another, and Akron scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to rally to beat Kent State 27-20 Saturday.
Eugene Jarvis had TD runs of 5 and 1 yards to give Kent (2-2, 0-1 MAC) a 14-7 lead early in the third quarter, and Nate Reed kicked field goals of 22 and 42 yards. Jarvis finished with 159 yards on 28 carries.
Akron (2-2, 1-0) was penalized 10 times for 98 yards and had just 245 yards total offense, compared with 375 for Kent State. But the Golden Flashes lost a pair of fumbles inside the Akron 31, and a pass by Julian Edelman was intercepted by Davanzo Tate at the Akron 1 as time ran out.
Edelman was 8-of-21 for 155 yards passing and ran for 65 yards on 20 carries.
Igor Iveljic kicked field goals of 22 and 43 yards for Akron, the last one coming midway through the final quarter after Reed's 42-yarder had pulled Kent within 4 at 24-20.
