What there is to know
The Akron Zips have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last two games, but now they have to hit the road. They will face the Ohio State Buckeyes at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Both teams go into the game with comfortable wins in their previous matches.
Akron made the Bulldogs’ job easier for Bryant last week and earned a 35-14 victory.
Meanwhile, OSU was the big favorite in their most recent clash, and for good reason. They hurt the Tulsa Golden Hurricane with a clear 41-20 victory. RB TreVeyon Henderson was a one-man demolition team for the Buckeyes, rushing for three touchdowns and 277 yards on 24 carries. Henderson took center stage with a 52-yard TD in the third quarter.
The victories took Akron to 1-2 and OSU to a reciprocal 2-1. A few defensive stats to keep in mind as you watch: Akron is 240th worst in the nation in touchdowns allowed, with 14 over the season. The Buckeyes have had their own struggles as they stumble into the game with the 215th most yards allowed per game in the country, after allowing 471.3 on average. It’s possible that one of those Achilles’ heels will end up tripping the losing team.
