Kent State Athletic Director Joel Nielsen said they were limited to the number of home non-conference games they could have.

"We had to walk a fine line between competitiveness and the ability to help the department from a budgetary standpoint, and that’s not an easy task," Nielsen said in a press release. "Obviously, we would rather have more than one home non-conference game in 2012 and 2013, but we inherited contracts that limited our flexibility in that area."
