Zips look better, but not good enough

By mrasor Published: October 17, 2009

Patrick Nicely and DeVoe Torrence took steps forward, but the Zips dropped their fourth-straight game. Buffalo won 21-17.
Akron, now 1-5 and 0-3 in the MAC, has turned a high-potential season into a full-blown rebuilding year.
Nicely completed 17-of-34 passes for 200 yards, two interceptions and no touchdowns. Despite not-so-good numbers, he continued to show why so many recruiters coveted him. Torrence ran for 90 yards on 13 carries, giving Akron the best performance from a featured back all season.
But it was not enough. With a chance to take the lead in the final minutes, Nicely threw an interception. And with half the season done, even an undefeated finish would make Akron a borderline bowl team.
Grades are coming tomorrow.
