Akron is a 14-point
favorite. It sounds like a fair spread, but I think the Zips will cover.
Ball State leads the all-time series, 15-12, according to
GoZips.com. I assume a lot of those wins came during the
Bonzi Wells era of the mid '90s. Akron has won the past four meetings.

Nikola Cvetinovic. It's a good read.

Elton Alexander wrote a humorous
story about the bond between the McKnight brothers. (Zips fans should be thankful they have two hard-working, intelligent writers on their beat. I guarantee you that's not true around the MAC -- or even the NBA.)
Is it possible that the MAC West is heating up? Yesterday's
results might suggest that. Central Michigan beat Miami in a game that went down to the last minute in Mount Pleasant, Mich. Northern Illinois took Kent State to double-overtime, where the Flashes prevailed in DeKalb, Ill.
The good news, of course, is that Miami lost its third MAC game. If Akron wins tonight, the Zips move into a tie for second in the conference. Buffalo, Bowling Green and Ohio each will play road games in the next two days. It would be nice to bring Buffalo down a notch or see the latter two fall off Akron's heels.
I will liveblog tonight from Rhodes Arena.
