KENT, Ohio -- Kent State gained 400 of their 546 total yards on the ground as the Golden Flashes won their eighth-straight game, defeating Miami (Ohio) 48-32 Saturday in Mid-American Conference action.

Trayion Durham led Kent State (9-1, 6-0) with 172 yards on 20 carries, Dri Archer tallied 151 yards on 11 carries, and quarterback Spencer Keith added 76 yards on nine carries.

The trio combined for five first-half rushing touchdowns as Kent State took a 35-10 lead into halftime.

Durham and Archer, who each scored twice, have both been named candidates for the Doak Walker Award honoring the nation's best running back. Kent State is one of just five teams with two running backs nominated for the award.

Zac Dysert completed 37 of 50 passes for 455 yards and four touchdowns for Miami (4-6, 3-3) but was sacked five times and threw two interceptions.
