If you haven’t been following the lead up to the college football season, you may not know that Kennesaw State is playing its first season of college football this season. On Saturday, they played their first ever home game at Fifth Third Bank Stadium, in a contest against NAIA opponent Edward Waters.
While Edward Waters didn’t put up too much opposition for the Owls on this Saturday afternoon, it was a day for Kennesaw State Owl fans to remember. From tailgating to pep rallies to a sold out stadium and fighter jet flyover, Kennesaw State University couldn’t have asked for a better start to their 2015 football season.
Saturday not only ended being their first home game, but also their first home win. Here is a summary of some of the other “firsts” Kennesaw State has achieved so far this season.
In last week’s 56-16 road win over East Tennessee State:
First Offensive Play: Trey White 4-yard rush
First Touchdown: Trey White 6-yard run (1st quarter)
First Passing Touchdown: White 69 yards to Justin Sumpter (3rd quarter)
First Defensive Tackle: Taylor Henkle (1st quarter)
First Defensive Touchdown: Nick Perrotta 19-yard INT return (2nd quarter
In this week’s home win over Edward Waters:
First touchdown at home: Fumble recovery Izzy Sam.
Tickets are still available for a few of Kennesaw State’s home games.
