Football "Wait, there's another football game going on today?" most Ohioans would say. Yes. And Akron's bowl hopes rest on it. The Bobcats have won twice, but most would agree that number is not indicative of their level of competition this season.
News clips and notes...
J.D. Brookhart talks about the Bobcats' speedy defense.
Buchtelite -- Akron's fifth road win would be the highest total in program history.
The Zips are 2.5-point
depth chart shows
Joe Rash starting in front of
Shawn Lemon at defensive end. This is a joke, right? One of Akron's only defensive playmakers is not starting? Wow.
I will try to start a chat room on my blog for the game. It's a really neat function.
Dan Kadar uses it on his Browns blog. Please stop by and give your opinions.
Prediction -- This is an important game for
Dennis Kennedy. The Bobcats have succeeded in stopping the pass. He should run for at least 150 yards. Akron's defense had an extra day of rest, so they should see more success than usual against the Bobcats' battered skill positions.
