KENT, OH -

C.J. Malauulu returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown - 12 seconds after another Kent State TD - and the No. 23 Golden Flashes completed a perfect season in the Mid-American Conference with their 10th straight win, 28-6 over Ohio on Friday.

The regular-season finale was a tuneup for Kent State (11-1, 8-0 MAC), which will meet No. 24 Northern Illinois in next week's MAC championship. The win allowed the Golden Flashes to continue the best season in the program's 90-year history. They are ranked for the first time since 1972, the last time they appeared in a bowl game.

Trayion Durham rushed for 97 yards and scored on a 15-yard run in the first quarter to put Kent State ahead 14-0.

On Ohio's next play, Malauulu picked off Tyler Tettleton and scored.

The Bobcats (8-4, 4-4) lost four of its last five after cracking the Top 25.
