The Bowling Green Falcons will look to stay undefeated in the MAC conference with a win over the Akron Zips. They need a win to stay with the Ohio Bobcats as the only other undefeated team in the MAC East.
Akron needs a win in order to keep their chances alive to win the MAC East. Akron is 1-1 with a loss to Ohio, a loss versus Bowling Green and that just about effectively ends their chances of winning the MAC East.
Akron has a very anemic offense. Sophomore quarterback Thomas Woodson has struggled as he has only completed 51% of his passes. Akron will have to lean on senior halfback Conor Hundley to not only get their offense going, but to keep Bowling Green’s offense off the field. Hundley has rushed for 6 touchdowns and 484 yards for the season.
Statistically, Akron’s defense doesn’t look that bad on paper. Akron ranks 30th in total yards and they have given up only 20.5 points which is 38th in college football.
However, Akron has played a lot of cupcake offenses. Pittsburgh is 112th in total yards and 81st in scoring points. Ohio is 79th in total yards and 71st in points scored. Eastern Michigan is a 1-5 football team with an offense, statistically, in the same ballpark with Ohio.
The only team Akron faced with a great offense is Oklahoma. The Sooners rank 22nd in total yards, 14th in passing yards, and 25th in scoring points. With that high flying offense the Sooners were able to put up 42 points on Akron.
Bowling Green Falcons
Bowling Green has one of the best offenses in college football. Bowling Green is one of the more prolific offenses in college.
The Falcons snap the ball about 90 times a game, which is 3rd in college football, they are 2nd in passing yards, 4th in total offense, and 11th in scoring offense.
Bowling Green is going to put up a ton of points at home. Their defense on the other hand is about the worst defense in college football. Which is understandable considering how long they are out on the field.
Luckily, this week, Bowling Green gets a favorable match up against Akron. The Zips rank 91st in total offense, 90th in passing yards, and 87th in points scored. Akron will run the ball which, statistically, does favor Bowling Green as they rank 66th in the nation.
We’ll see if they can make a couple of stops.

I like Bowling Green to cover and I like the over. Bowling Green is going to put up the points in bunches and Akron will get their fair share, as well. However, for my best bet pick, I’ll take Bowling Green to cover the spread.
