The Zips (1-0) routed the Howard Bison 41-0 in their opening regular season game, behind a solid effort from quarterback Kyle Pohl who finished the game with 304 passing yards and four touchdowns.

Akron rolled over the Bison defense, piling up nearly 400 total yards.

Four different Akron receivers finished with more than 60 receiving yards, to led a passin g attack that is ranked 11th-best in the country.

Defensively, the Zips allowed just 68 passing yards and forced a turnover, while sacking Howard’s quarterback four times.

Penn State

The Nittany Lions (1-0) eked out a 26-24 win in the final seconds of their opener against the Central Florida Knights last week.

Quarterback Christian Hackenberg turned in a less than stellar performance, throwing two interceptions, but finished with 454 passing yards and a touchdown on 47 pass attempts.


His favorite target, wide receiver Geno Lewis posted a record day, hauling in 173 receiving yards on eight receptions.

Meanwhile, Penn State’s rushing attack needs some work, after it managed just two yards per carry on 28 rushes against a weaker Knights’ defense.

The Nittany Lions also need to make a few minor adjustments on the defensive side of the ball as well, after surrendering 246 total yards.

They did however – play well against the run, allowing only 24 rushing yards.

Week 2 NCAA Football Spread Prediction

Penn State will have to have more success on the ground if they’re going to compete in the Big Ten.

Nevertheless, they are a talented team on both sides of the ball, especially against a team like Akron.

I like the Nittany Lions in a blowout here, as Pohl can’t lead the team in running every game, nor carry them to victory alone against teams the caliber of Penn State.

Score Prediction: 4* Play on Penn State 45, Akron 20
