The Kent State University football squad is set to square off against Northern Illinois University for the 2012 Marathon Mid-American Conference football championship tonight.
The Golden Flashes will have some supporters in Lakewood.
The game will be shown on TV on ESPN 2, with the kickoff slated for 7 p.m. today.
The Kent State University Alumni Association will host game watch parties across the country in areas with larger populations of Kent State alumni including: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Raleigh, N.C., Tampa, Fla., and Washington D.C.
At least a couple Lakewood bars are hosting official watch parties.

- Quaker Steak and Lube: Kent State reports that Quaker Steak and Lube restaurants around Ohio — including the Lakewood location — will host parties starting at 6 p.m.
