Kennesaw State dominates in first ever home game

The Kennesaw State Owls waited a long time for their first ever home football game. They didn't have to wait long to figure out the outcome.

"Soon as we hit it and the smoke came up [as the team ran out on the field], everything was going, that was kind of a moment," said Owls head coach Brian Bohannon. "One of those moments you're like, 'holy cow. we're here.'"

Kennesaw State topped Edward Waters College out of Jacksonville, Florida 58-7 in the Owls' first ever home game. Edward Waters is competes in the NAIA. KSU won their first game last Saturday on the road against East Tennessee State.

The pregame atmosphere was festival-like. Tickets sold out and tailgaters filled parking lots well before the game.

"The place was rocking," said quarterback Trey White. "The atmosphere was great. You can have an idea the fans will be great, but you don't really know until you get there."

Next up, Kennesaw State hosts Shorter University out of Rome, Georgia next Saturday at 1pm.
