KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State will open the 2011 season at
Alabama against alum and Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.

The Golden Flashes will face one of the nation's powerhouse
programs on Sept. 3 in Tuscaloosa. It will be the first meeting
between the schools in football, and Kent State's first game at an
SEC school since visiting Kentucky in 2007.

Saban played defensive back for the Golden Flashes from 1970-72.
He was teammates with Hall of Fame linebacker Jack Lambert and
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel in 1972, when Kent State won the only
Mid-American Conference title in school history.

Saban graduated with a bachelor's degree in business and earned
a master's degree in sports administration from Kent State.

    I get the alum connection but why do we need to play inferior teams? Play teams that will be competitive.
