Toledo has beaten Akron once already this season. It’ll have to do it for a second time if in the MAC Championship if it wants the title. The rematch is Saturday.
Akron’s big win was in Week 12 against Ohio when the Zips came away three-point winners to get a game clear of the Bobcats. They sealed the deal last week with a win over Kent State at home in a game that wasn’t as close: 24–7.
It is Akron’s first MAC East Division title since 2005 and now the Zips get a second chance against Toledo — the team that gave Akron one of its two conference losses this season.
There isn’t a lot of information out there on Thomas Woodson but the Zips’ senior quarterback has missed the last three games for a violation of team rules. Akron has gone to its freshman Kato Nelson in the last three and he’s won his last two but he isn’t any Woodson either.
Nelson went 6-for-20 last week with 69 yards last week and he threw his first pick since Woodson’s suspension. It’s unknown whether Woodson will get back in time for this game but it’s hard to imagine Akron winning without him.
That’s because Toledo is the class of the MAC. The Rockets finished 7–1 in the conference, including a 48–21 win over the Zips several weeks ago. Their only loss was at Ohio and then out of conference at Miami against the Hurricanes and they even managed 30 points against an athletic Hurricanes’ defense.
Quarterback Logan Woodside threw an interception last week in his final game of the regular season. It was just the third pick all year for the senior who finished with 24 touchdowns and 10 yards per attempt.
Woodside is backed by a dominant running game that gained over five yards per carry all season and scored 30 times. The top two backs, Terry Swanson and Shakif Seymour, scored a dozen each. Swanson topped 1100 yards and Seymour averaged 6.3 yards per carry. The third guy, Art Thompkins, ran 97 times for 588 yards, including an 88-yard touchdown run, the longest for the team all year.
