OXFORD, Ohio (AP) Jawon Chisholm ran for three touchdowns as Akron held on for a 24-17 victory over Miami (Ohio) on Saturday.

Akron (2-6, 1-3 Mid-American) led 24-7 midway through the fourth quarter but Miami (0-7, 0-3) made it a one-possession game after a 44-yard touchdown pass from Austin Boucher to Dawan Scott and a 52-yard field goal from Kaleb Patterson.

Chisholm finished with 86 yards on 16 carries, scoring all three of Akron's touchdowns. Chisholm's first touchdown came on a 2-yard run on Akron's opening drive after a blocked punt by Andrew Pratt gave the Zips the ball at the Miami 13-yard line.

Austin Boucher threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns for the RedHawks.
