Two days before the football season opener, the university announced it supplemented its coverage with an FM station.
Along with 1350 AM, Akron fans also can listen to 106.9 FM.
For listeners who battled fuzzy signals on 1350, this must be welcomed news. Linking up with a popular music network might also add to the fanbase.
The trio of Steve French, Joe Dunn and Frank Stams will return this season. The Wisconsin game starts at noon, EST.
