What’s Going To Happen
Akron has had a rough run.
With Penn State and Iowa State beating the Zips by a combined score o 93 to 14, there hasn’t been a whole lot of fun against the good team. Beating Troy wouldn’t make everything all better, but as the first game in a run of four home games in five, a victory would be really, really nice.
Troy hasn’t exploded like last year, but it survived a dangerous road game against New Mexico State and played Boise State tough in a loss in the opener. The defensive front has been good, but can the ground game get going again like last year? It might be tougher than it appears.
Akron might have lost ugly in the two big games, but the offense is moving the chains, the defense isn’t bad on third downs, and the defensive front is getting behind the line.
Getting hit by a slew of penalties will be a massive issue – again – but watch out for Akron to make this a fight. It won’t have the passing game, though, when it needs it the most.
