MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Kent State will meet Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl in the first bowl appearance in 40 years for the Golden Flashes.

The game is played on Jan. 6, the eve of the BCS national championship game.

It's the second straight appearance in Mobile for Arkansas State, which lost 38-20 to Northern Illinois last season.

Kent State has won a program-record 11 games. The Golden Flashes are 0-2 all time in bowl games, including trips to the Refrigerator Bowl in 1954 and the Tangerine Bowl in 1972.

The Golden Flashes lost to Orange Bowl-bound Northern Illinois in double-overtime in the Mid-American Conference championship game.

The Red Wolves won the Sun Belt Conference title and are 9-3 under first-year head coach Gus Malzahn.
