CLEVELAND -- One of Kent State's most famous alums is making sure his school is backed at the College World Series.
Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs bought tickets and chartered a bus to take Golden Flashes fans to Omaha, Neb., this weekend to see the school's first appearance in the World Series. Kent State advanced by beating Oregon in the Super Regional on Monday.
Cribbs, who played quarterback at Kent State, bought 53 tickets for Saturday's game against Arkansas. He said he did it so Kent State would be well represented in Omaha.
Cribbs said even fans of rival Akron have been tweeting him congratulations for his alma mater's big win.
The Golden Flashes are the first Mid-American Conference team to make it to the World Series since Eastern Michigan in 1976.
