KENT, Ohio -- Eugene Jarvis ran for 106 yards and a touchdown to help Kent State end in-state rival Ohio's hopes of reaching the Mid-American Conference title game in a 28-6 upset on Friday.

Ohio's loss sends Miami of Ohio to the MAC title game to face Northern Illinois in Detroit next Friday. The loss also snapped the Bobcats' (8-4, 6-2) eight-game winning streak on the road in MAC play.

Kent State (5-7, 4-4) finished with at least a .500 in the conference play for the fourth time in seven seasons under coach Doug Martin, who said on Sunday he will resign after the game.

The Golden Flashes never trailed in the contest, jumping out to a 14-0 lead in first half after Luke Batton's touchdown off a fumble recovery and Spencer Keith's 1-yard rushing score.

Kent State's defense finished with seven sacks, recovered two fumbles and had two interceptions.

Research Notes

Ohio just needed to beat Kent State in order to clinch the MAC East, but Ohio's 28-6 loss means that Miami (OH) is now the MAC East champion. Miami (OH) went just 1-11 last year and is 8-4 this year; their 7-win improvement is the highest among all FBS teams this season. Miami (OH) will play Northern Illinois in the MAC title game.
