Bowling Green (2-8) vs. Akron (4-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Akron just can’t get bowl eligible.
It’s been close, going 4-3 before losing the last two weeks, but it has to go on the road to deal with Ohio next week and South Carolina to finish up.
Basically, if it wants to get that sixth win, it has to happen now.
Bowling Green finally got a win over an FBS team, tagging Central Michigan last week with – for the first time all year – a little bit of defense showing up. Against a punchless Akron team, it has to be strong again, especially against the Zip passing game.
Akron can’t really throw, but it really, really can’t run. What it can do is generate third down stops and score whenever it gets an opportunity in the red zone.
The Zip pass rush and D will hold up against the Falcon passing game, and the ground game will crank up 200 yards for just the second time all year.
It’s not going to be a pretty offensive performance, but six wins and bowl eligibility will look just fine. Even if it takes a fight to get there.
