2018 Akron Zips Football Schedule Analysis
– The Zips get to start out being known as the first team to face Nebraska in the Scott Frost era. It’s followed up by a nice breather against Morgan State, before diving back into the Big Ten with a trip to Northwestern. Follow it up with a date at Iowa State, and it’ll be a rough and tough September. They’ll have earned the week off before getting into MAC play.
– It’s all about the East to start up the conference action, hosting Miami University before going to Buffalo and Kent State. The other two division games come at the end, finishing up with Bowling Green, and what might be the game for the East title again, at Ohio.
– The midsection of the slate deals with the West, in three straight games going against Central Michigan, Northern Illinois, and at Eastern Michigan. That’s not bad – the Zips miss Toledo and Western Michigan, but they don’t get the break of facing Ball State.
