The Akron Zips have not looked very good this year, but they are coming off a game against the Bobcats where at least they showed a little bit of life and they will now look to build on that as they face off against the Golden Flashes on Tuesday evening.
The Golden Flashes are on the other end of the spectrum as they have looked awesome thus far and I do not see many good reasons to believe they won’t just roll the Zips in this spot.
The Ohio Bobcats controlled the Zips last time out, but the running game specifically, was something that they really can build on going forward and will once again look towards having success on the ground against Kent State.
Teon Dollard was the main man rushing the ball for Akron against the Bobcats and he should play into the Zips plan in a big way on Tuesday so long as this game stays close enough to justify the Zips investing in the run game.
With the spread where it is, and my thoughts that this game will probably be finished sometime in the 3rd quarter I see most of the onus of the Zips offense falling on the shoulders of freshman QB Zach Gibson, who, based on what we have seen so far, might need a year of experience before he is able to lead this Zips team to the next level.
Kent State Golden Flashes
Not only have the Golden Flashes got to 2-0, but they have done it in style with an impressive win over Eastern Michigan and a blow-out victory over Bowling Green.
In that win over Bowling Green they amassed close to 700 total yards of offense and although I do not think Kent State will be quite as prolific on Tuesday night, I can see Dustin Crum and Co. doing more than enough offensively to get the job done here against the spread.
