Akron lost last week at Toledo but the Zips are still on top of the MAC East and get to stay at home this week for their game with Buffalo.
The Bulls opened MAC play with a win at Kent State but haven’t won since. They lost 71–68 against Western Michigan, then 14–13 against Northern Illinois.
Last week was UB’s first time on the road since their win against Kent State but things didn’t go as well in a 24–14 loss.
So the Bulls could just as easily be 3–1 in conference; instead, they are 1–3. Their offense has shown explosiveness when the defense can’t get stop and the defense has shown containment when their offense can’t get going.
It’s a matter of putting it together in a complete team win, which hasn’t happened in a month.
It is unclear at this point what choices the Bulls have at quarterback. Drew Anderson won the starting job from Tyree Jackson when he performed well in an opportunity to play when Jackson hurt his knee.
Now Anderson is hurt and may not be available for the second-straight week. Freshman Kyle Vantrease is all that’s left for UB if both guys remain sidelined.
The Zips were thoroughly beaten last week at Toledo, their first conference loss after a 3–0 start.
The defense just couldn’t stop the Rockets, who rushed 43 times for 303 yards. That ground game opened things up for Logan Woodside and the passing game.
Woodside only had to throw 24 times but he was rather efficient, finishing with 304 yards and five touchdowns.
A homecoming is what Akron needs.
Three of its final four games are at home and the Zips still have to feel like they are the favorite to take the MAC East at this point, tied with Ohio who they will play in another two weeks at home.

With the quarterback situation unclear for Buffalo, it could be hard to make a pick anytime before Friday. If it’s Vantrease, you have to like Akron, otherwise I would be willing to play UB with the field goal advantage.
