We have reached week six of the college football season, and most of the teams are now playing the conference portion of the college football season.
In this game it’s a MAC showdown between two teams who are 2-3 at the InfoCision Stadium in Akron, Ohio.
The Ball State Cardinals make the trip to take on the Akron Zips. The Zips won their match up last year by the final score of 35-25.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals have had a very up and down season, and come into this game with a 2-3 record. They started the season against the Illinois Fighting Illini and they almost pulled the big upset, but came up just short losing 24-21.
They then railed off two straight wins against two sub par teams. In their last two games they have struggled though losing to Western Kentucky and Western Michigan.
In the last game against Western Michigan they were only 12.5 point underdogs but ended up losing the game by the final of 55-3.
After the defense had played decent the first couple of games it sure looked like they forgot how to play against the Broncos.
To win this game the Cardinals defense needs to be better first and foremost. The Zips offense is gaining confidence and they can’t let them walk all over them in this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Akron Zips who have had a disappointing season, but come into this game off a victory, which gave them some much needed confidence.
In their last game against the Bowling Green Falcons the offense really started to click and that led to a 34-23 victory.
The Zips are led by Senior quarterback Thomas Woodson who has been decent this year. He comes into this game having thrown for 913 yards and six touchdowns. He has thrown five interceptions and that has really hurt their chances in some games.
To win this game Woodson needs to play good in this game, and he needs to stop throwing interceptions. The Zips are really the better team in this game, and they need to get out to a fast start.
They can’t let the Cardinals hang around or it will give them a lot of confidence and they could end up being upset in the game.
