KENT, Ohio (AP) — Taylor Powell threw three touchdown passes — two to Tanner Knue in the second half — and Eastern Michigan rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat Kent State 31-24 Wednesday night.

EMU’s Hassan Beydoun scored on a 13-yard strike from Powell to open the scoring with 5:16 left in the first quarter but Kent State (4-7, 3-4) answered about 2 minutes later when Collin Schlee threw a 39-yard TD pass to Ja’Shaun Poke. Andrew Glass kicked a 36-yard field goal early in second quarter and Marquez Cooper’s 1-yard scoring run gave the Golden Flashes a 17-7 halftime lead.

Knue caught a 39-yard TD pass early in the third quarter, Jesus Gomez added a 33-yard field goal to make it 17-all going into the fourth before Knue’s second touchdown, an 11-yard reception, gave the Eagles the lead for good with 10:46 remaining.

Poke finished with six receptions for 105 yards and Devontez Walker added 125 yards receiving for Kent State. Cooper had 20 carries for 80 yards and his 3-yard TD run capped the scoring with 41 seconds left.

Knue recovered the ensuing onside kick.
