Zips let finale slip away

By mrasor Published: November 23, 2007

Football
Akron nearly committed grand theft by pulling out a victory against Central Michigan, despite being outgained by more than 300 yards.
CMU's Dan LeFevour led the Chippewas down the field for a touchdown to win 35-32.
Akron nearly sealed a victory with four minutes left. Chris Jacquemain found Jabari Arthur open for a gain that would have put the Zips in field goal position and given them a chance to run out the clock. A holding penalty negated the long gain and ultimately resulted in good field position for LeFevour to begin his game-winning drive.
Arthur caught eight balls for 111 yards in his final collegiate game. Bryan Williams was the Zips' other star, scoring two touchdowns and running for 145 yards.
I'll have more on the game later. My frozen fingers don't want to type, but feel free to comment about what you saw in the mean time.
