Akron has fallen to 3rd in the MAC East and is now likely out of the race, unless they get some huge help here.
With that in mind, a win here over the Bowling Green Falcons would give the Zips that 6th in and make them bowl eligible here on Wednesday.
Bowling Green Falcons
A year after winning the MAC title, the Bowling Green Falcons cannot wait for the finish line to come up.
Enduring one of their worst seasons in program history, the Falcons find themselves at just 1-8, with their lone win coming against North Dakota by a single point.
The Falcons are just simply getting torched defensively and not making up for any of their sluggish defense offensively. Bowling Green is giving up 45.1 points per game, while averaging only 21.2.
Breaking the numbers down is even more mind boggling. Bowling Green is giving up over 500 yards per game defensively and come in off a performance that saw them give up 45 points to Northern Illinois.
There just hasn’t been any sort of stability for the Falcons this year. With that in mind, they are a younger team and have gotten a lot of the growing pains out of the way this season. Showing some encouraging signs down the stretch will be a huge ordeal for this team.
The Akron Zips should now focus their attention on gaining bowl eligibility as they have dropped back to back games to fall in the MAC East.
Akron now sits at 5 wins with this game, along with a matchup with Ohio looming.
Akron has lost all their momentum defensively, as they’ve given up 41 and 48 points over the last 2 weeks.
Unfortunately for Akron, the defense likely won’t get any better either over these final two games. Akron has given up 35.6 points per game which ranks 110th in the nation.
It’s up to the offense to control the tempo.
They’ll likely use a lot of short plays to attempt at keeping the clock ticking here. Expect more runs as well, something they haven’t been doing as of late.
