Troy (1-1) vs. Akron (0-3) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Akron’s lines are having way too many problems. There aren’t any tackles for loss, there isn’t any quarterback pressure, and there isn’t enough coming from the running game partly because no team in America is giving up more sacks per game.
And that’s where Troy comes in.
The Trojans are fantastic at getting to the quarterback and screwing offenses up – at least after two games – and the passing game is among the nation’s most efficient and effective.
Can Akron get its own passing game going against the mediocre Trojan secondary? No. The line won’t give the backfield enough time to operate.
The Zips are great at controlling the clock and and the tempo, but they’ll turn the ball over a few too many times and they won’t be able to keep up the pace with the Trojan passing game. Kaleb Barker is playing too well – six touchdowns with no picks hitting 65% of his throws – for Akron to handle.
