We have reached week twelve of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. In this game it’s a MAC showdown when the Bowling Green Falcons make the trip to InfoCision Stadium to take on the Akron Zips.
The visiting team has won the last two matchups between these two teams.
Bowling Green Falcons
It has been a terrible year for the Bowling Green Falcons who haven’t had a good season but they come into ths game having won their last game.
The biggest issue for the Falcons is the way the defense has been playing. So far this year they are giving up 43 points per game.
On the offensive side they actually haven’t been terrible averaging 25.7 points but when the defense s that bad, it doesn’t matter.
At quarterback the Falcons are led by Jarret Doedge who has thrown for 2398 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
In this game the defense is going to need to be strong to give the offense a chance to come away with a victory.
On the other side of this matchup is the Akron Zips who have had an up and down season but come into this game having lost two straight.
This is a team that really leans on their defense, because a lot of the time the offense really holds them back from having success.
On the season they are only averaging 21.1 points per game, but in their last game against Eastern Michigan they really struggled scoring only seven points.
At quarterback the Zips are led by Kato Nelson who has thrown for 1647 yards, 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
In this game they need to keep this as a low scoring game. If they let this game get into a shootout they don’t have the offense to keep up.

I think the Zips will lock down on the defensive side, but the Zips offense will struggle so much, that they won’t have a chance to cover the spread.
