MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Ryan Aplin's productive passing career helped carry Arkansas State to two Sun Belt Conference championships.
For his final college game, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior didn't have to be the hero.
Aplin completed 21 of 30 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown and J.D. McKissic caught 11 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown, but it was a bruising defense that was the biggest factor in Arkansas State's 17-13 victory over No. 25 Kent State on Sunday in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
