Like I expected, Akron is the favorite over Youngstown State tonight.
Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but I can't find a game preview from the ABJ, PD or Vindicator. I suppose it's the holidays so some reporters are taking vacation time.
Anyhow, here are some predictions...
Akron should not have much problem winning tonight. Youngstown State, while a solid team, is exactly the kind of squad Akron's defense specializes in stopping. It has good offensive guards but no scoring threat over 6-foot-4.
Don't expect a blowout, though. It's a road game, and I expect a good crowd at the Beeghly Center. That should play in YSU's favor.
Prediction: Zips 75, Penguins 61
