What’s Going To Happen
Can Akron get back on track and take the MAC East? Can Buffalo stay in the hunt for a bowl game? It’s been a surprisingly good season for both teams, but the production has to come – the loser of this game will be in real trouble in different ways.
There’s no shame in Akron getting lit up by Toledo – probably the MAC’s best team – but even with that, it’s almost a lock to go bowling with Miami University up next and Kent State to close.
But the Zips want more. If they win this, the division title will almost certainly come down to the showdown with Ohio in a few weeks. But they can’t lose to UB.
Buffalo suffered heartbreaking losses to strong Western Michigan and Northern Illinois teams, and then it did the inexcusable and lost to Miami. With Bowling Green and Ball State up next, it should be able to come up with a few more wins, but with Ohio to close, it might need this one to get to six and a bowl.
Akron doesn’t do much on defense, and it doesn’t have a whole lot on offense that it can rely on, but it has a secondary that can pick off passes. What it does managed to do well is own third down plays on both sides of the ball.
UB has one of the league’s best offensive lines, and it has a dangerous passing game that can push the ball down the field. But with a defense that knows how to come up with scores, and an offense that can move the chains, Akron seems to be able to figure it out.
It’ll do that at home for a key win.
