OXFORD, Ohio -- Eugene Jarvis and Julian Edelman combined for five touchdowns and 263 yards rushing to lead Kent State to a 54-21 rout of Miami of Ohio Saturday.

The Flashes (2-6, 1-3) found themselves down 7-3 at the end of the first quarter, but exploded for 28 points in the second quarter, all courtesy of Jarvis.
