KENT, Ohio — The Kent State Golden Flashes have accepted a bid on a bowl game and will play Utah State in the Tropical Smoothie Café Frisco Bowl.

The game will be played on Friday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

This is the fourth-ever bowl game in program history.

In 2012, Kent won their way into the GoDaddy.com Bowl game. They ultimately fell to the Arkansas State Red Wolves, 17-13.

Before the GoDaddy.com Bowl game, the Golden Flashes appeared in the Tangerine Bowl in 1972 and the Refrigerator Bowl in 1954. They lost both bowls.

The Tropical Smoothie Café Frisco Bowl will be aired on ESPN 2.

If the Golden Flashes can take down Utah State, it will mark the program’s first-ever bowl game win.
