What’s Going To Happen
Akron is still deep in the hunt for the MAC title, needing to win this week to set up a showdown against Ohio in the East game of the year. The Zips might not be doing much offensively, but the defense has been solid against everyone but Toledo.
More than anything else, the team has figured out how to win close games, pulling off two one-point wins in the last three outings. Now on a run of four wins in the last five games, everything is set up for a big finishing kick – and to become bowl eligible.
Miami is just trying to find something positive.
The team that went on a late run to go bowling last year now has to win its final three games to do it again. Win this week, get by Eastern Michigan at home next Wednesday, and beat Ball State – bowl game.
The hope is for QB Gus Ragland to be back, healthy, and good enough to go, but the offense hasn’t necessarily been the problem.
The Akron offense isn’t anything special, but it’s terrific at keeping the chains moving. Miami doesn’t have a pass rush and it’s not nearly disruptive enough in key moments. While the RedHawks are able to control the clock, they’re not going to control the game.
The Zips will keep finding ways to get the job done. This week, it’ll be with a few key picks late.
