NC State lists its star corner A.J. Davis as doubtful for today's game against Akron.
Also on the injury report: linebacker Ernest Jones will play, wide receiver Lamart Barrett is probable and center Luke Lathan is out.
Read these media links from gameday. After that, I'll give you my prediction.
Here are my range of predictions...
NC State's defense doesn't worry me as much as its running game, although Penn State was a better team in both aspects. Basically, these are two evenly matched teams. It will depend on which team makes its field goals and protects the ball.
The Zips need a great game out of Andy Alleman, Tim Crouch and the line. They need solid games from Getsy, Dennis Kennedy and the defensive line. And they need special teams to have an adequate day.
If all those things happen, I'm confident that editors at the Akron Beacon Journal will have quite a conundrum: Play up an Ohio State loss or Zips upset win?
