Akron at Massachusetts

Chisholm scores in 4th as Akron tops UMass 14-13


FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) Jawon Chisholm had 109 yards from scrimmage and scored the go-ahead touchdown with 9:49 left in the game on Saturday to give Akron a 14-13 victory over Massachusetts.

Kyle Pohl converted a key fourth-and-4 from the UMass 30 on a 7-yard keeper for the Zips (4-7, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) to set up his 17-yard touchdown to Chisholm two plays later. Chilsholm caught the ball on a hitch route, found his way up the sideline and leapt into the end zone from the 5-yard line with the ball stretched just inside pylon.

The last time Akron had four wins in a year was in 2007.

UMass (1-9, 1-5) had the ball only once after Chisholm's touchdown. On fourth-and-1 at the Zips 47, Jamal Wilson rushed for no gain for the Minutemen and Akron ran off the remaining 6:44 to seal the win.
