Akron (2-3) vs. Kent State (1-6) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
It’s do-or-die time for an Akron team that can’t find its offense over the last three games – scoring 26 points in the losses – and in desperate need of a win to keep its season alive.
Kent State just wants to get its season going at all under first year head coach Sean Lewis.
It’s been a rough run, and even with the improvements on both sides, going 1-6 with no FBS wins is a problem.
Kent State has just the defense Akron needs to face, but more importantly, it has the offensive line for the Zips to dominate.
The Golden Flashes can’t keep defenses out of the backfield, allowing more tackles for loss than any team in college football. Combine that with a defense that’s getting ripped to shreds – especially through the air – and Akron should pull off the road win.
The Zip defense doesn’t get behind the line, but it can stop the run. That will be enough.
