ESPN.com previewed Akron's opening-week game against The Ohio State University (Columbus).
The Zips have a 2.1 percent chance of winning, according to the writer, Brian Bennett.
Here is an excerpt:
Totally unscientific percentage chance Ohio State wins: 97.9 percent. No Terrelle Pryor. No Dan Herron, DeVier Posey or Mike Adams. A new head coach. Tons of offseason distractions. All of these things could add up to an opening-week struggle for Ohio State -- if the opponent were a bit tougher. Akron should be improved over last season, simply because there's really nowhere to go but up for the Zips. But the Buckeyes still have way too much for Akron to handle, especially at home. If not, it could really be a bad year in Columbus.
