This is the first conference game for both teams. Akron is desperate to play someone a little more in their league I would think.
Central Michigan is in much better shape though not sure where their head is right now.
Look for CMU to be favoured at home. They should probably be able to start MAC play with a win.
The Zips were a little more competitive last week than in their opener, losing by only 11 at home to UAB.
It is early but the offense has been awful. They are averaging less than 50 yards rushing per game.
They have been able to throw the ball though. Dustin Burkhart had a monster game against UAB with 217 yards receiving on just 8 catches.
Akron is on the road so I am not expecting a huge jump in production but playing lighter competition will help.
This is a chance to reset after a couple of losses but the Zips are not really going anywhere this season so tread carefully.
Central Michigan Chippewas
Central Michigan just got abused by Wisconsin 61-0. I am hopeful that might have created a buying opportunity as this team should be decent in the MAC this season.
Senior QB Quinton Dormady’s former SEC talent should play well in this one and Jim McElwain is a good coach. Look for the offense to be a lot better than last week when they were overmatched.
The defense will get a break too. Last week they really had to be worried about getting run over but it was the Badgers passing game that really crushed them.
CMU at home is nothing like a sure thing but this is a good spot where they can get things back on track.

I am expecting both teams to be sharper in this one but Central Michigan is a better play at home
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UCM -4
Look for the Chippewas to have a great game plan to get up early and then go from there.
The under might be solid too as I am not expecting much from the Akron offense. They are guilty until proven otherwise.
