Kent State Golden Flashes Tickets
Cheer on the Golden Flashes with your Kent State tickets from TicketSmarter. The Ohio-based university fields nineteen varsity athletic programs across men’s and women’s sports. The Flashes are members of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) and compete in the East division. Some of the earliest athletic teams consisted of intramural women’s programs. Very few athletic opportunities were available for men. While sports began as early as 1913, the first intercollegiate athletic event wasn’t held until 1915. From that first game, many different programs have been added, including Kent State basketball and football. Even though Kent State’s athletics began fielding women’s teams, the first intercollegiate women’s program was not founded until 1964.
Purchase Kent State tickets in the fall to see the Golden Flashes on the gridiron. The football team played their first season in 1920 and were considered independent until 1932. They joined the Ohio Athletic Conference in 1932 and remained until leaving for the MAC in 1951. The Golden Flashes football team claimed the 2012 MAC East crown but fell short of the conference title to the Northern Illinois Huskies in double-overtime. An appearance in the 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl against Arkansas State was an adequate consolation prize.
Kent State basketball remained relatively mediocre until the mid-1990s. They made a few appearances in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) but never made it out of the first round. Under the leadership of head coach Gary Waters, the Golden Flashes took care of business in the MAC. They won more than 20 games in the 1999 season and knocked off the Miami RedHawks in the MAC Tournament Championship to earn an automatic bid for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Former Los Angeles Chargers’ tight end Antonio Gates played on the 2001-02 Kent State basketball team. He helped lead the Golden Flashes to 30 wins and a top-12 ranking at the end of the season.
