Akron Zips

Akron Zips might have been a strong team last year, but they enter this week’s game with a 0-5 record. While the college football odds are not in their favor, the Zips will need to consider that the Golden Flashes as not the same anymore and have improved. Akron lost to Central Michigan, UMass, and Troy and they still have to play Buffalo and Northern Illinois in the coming weeks. It seems to be a hard season for the Zips and now it’s time to deal with Kent State.
