The 2017 Akron Zips under head coach Terry Bowden lost to Toledo in the MAC Championship, and went on to get rocked by Lane Kiffin’s Florida Atlantic team 50-3 in the Boca Raton Bowl.

It was a strong 7-7 season, followed up by a not-bad 4-3 start to the 2018 campaign – highlighted by a stunning win over a Northwestern team that would go on to play in the Big Ten championship.

Akron beat Central Michigan 17-10 on October 27th, 2018. The next week it lost to Northern Illinois to kick off a run of five losses to end the season and 21 losses in a row coming into this week.

What’s worse, only two of those 21 defeats were by fewer than double-digits. One of those blowouts was at Bowling Green last season 35-6.

This year’s Akron team is having, let’s just say, a few issues – going 0-4 with 13 points or fewer in three of the losses – but it can run the ball.

It couldn’t do it all against Miami University last week – gaining four rushing yards whether it needed them or not – but it rumbled for 212 yards on the road at Kent State and 216 against Ohio.

Bowling Green has allowed 1,356 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns in four games.

The Falcons boast the nation’s least-efficient passing game, they’re dead-last in third down conversions – to go along with the worst run defense in college football – and the one lonely takeaway hasn’t been enough to help for a team that dropped its first four games by a total score of 194-54.

In Big Teams, Big Spreads, Big Wins Week, this one win for the Zips couldn’t be any bigger.
