What to Know
Akron is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 38 points per game. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Kent State at 3:30 p.m. ET at Summa Field at InfoCision Stadium on Saturday. Akron won both of their matches against Kent State last season (24-14 and 24-23) and is aiming for the same result this time around.
The point spread favored Akron two weeks ago, but luck did not. They fell to Massachusetts 37-29.
Meanwhile, after soaring to 62 points the game before, Kent State faltered in their contest last week. They took a serious blow against Wisconsin, falling 48 to nothing. The Golden Flashes were in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28 to nothing.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Akron are stumbling into the game with the second fewest rushing yards per game in the nation, having accrued only 51 on average. But the Golden Flashes are worst in the nation in rushing yards allowed per game, with 278.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
