If Caleb Porter knew Zips history, his bags would be packed for Moscow or some other cartoonishly unfair place for a first-round road game.
For once, however, the Zips didn't get screwed. In fact, they won't even play in the first round.
After the bye, either South Florida or Colgate will come to Lee Jackson Field. Then the course gets more difficult with a road game against No. 3 Connecticut. No. 2 Wake Forest, who beat Akron earlier in the season, also is on the Zips' side of the bracket.
The Zips will play their first game Wednesday the 28th. Round three will be the following weekend.
