The theme -- Dan LeFevour is the Chips offense. He's the MAC's No. 3 passer and No. 8 runner. He has 20 passing touchdowns and 13 rushing scores. That's Tim Tebow territory. LeFevour is the Zips' worst nightmare -- an amazing passer with great field vision and instincts when to leave the pocket.
How Akron can stop them -- Cold, sloppy weather would help. And it looks like the Zips will get it. If the conditions are bad, Akron needs to stack the box and focus on the run. If LeFevour can pass, hope for fumbles and that the Zips' offense can keep up. Also, maybe CMU coach Butch Jones will pull his starters considering the team has little to play for. They're already in the MAC Championship. But he probably won't.
