The Kent State University football team is headed to Detroit for the 2012 Mid-American Conference (MAC) Championship. Join the university at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, for a championship send-off event that will take place at the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center (MAC Center).

There also will be free coffee from Tree City Coffee.

Members of the university administration, Kent State head football coach Darrell Hazell and a few members of the team will address the crowd before loading the buses in search of the Golden Flashes’ first MAC Championship in football since 1972. 

The program is expected to last approximately 30 minutes.
