Akron lost 1-0 in overtime last night to No. 5 Indiana. The Zips best player, Ross McKenzie, sat out for cautions and starting defender Corey Sipos was hurt.
Coach Ken Lolla called it a good experience. Although you want to win every game, I agree. The Zips played a top-5 team without two starters and lost only in overtime. That is a testiment to Akron's defensive strength.
MAC play begins next week at Lee Jackson Field. I'm curious if Akron will still be the No. 1 ranked team by that point.
