The Zips beat UConn on penalty kicks today. Now they're off to Maryland for Saturday's game against the Terrapins at 1 p.m. Akron beat Maryland earlier this season in an exhibition game at Lee Jackson Field, 2-0.
Although Akron has already beaten Maryland, this game will be played at their place without the August Akron weather. I would travel to the game, but I have to work at the ABJ on Saturday. If anyone reading the blog is going, please post after the game to let us know more than what we can read from the UA press release.
This weekend just became the best in university athletics history. You will read me talk about the "best" or "most important" game in UA history a lot the next week. The football and soccer teams are making that happen.
