Akron is sixth in this week's Mid-Major Top 25.
Despite a scare against Buffalo, Kent State remains ahead at No. 5.
The Flashes actually added to their lead over Akron in points, despite nearly losing to a team at home (Buffalo) whom the Zips beat on the road. Also, the Zips' first opponent of the week (Miami) is stronger than Kent's (Bowling Green). Maybe you can take that as evidence that the voters aren't paying as close attention as you might like.
Ohio sits at 28th in the poll. Miami fell significantly.
