The Akron Zips dominated both sides of the ball in a 31-6 rout of Eastern Michigan in a conference bout in week six. The Zips fell behind 6-0 but turned it on and never looked back with a healthy 523-279 yardage edge. The defense put the clamps on the Eagles attack and recovered a pair of fumbles and intercepted two passes. Conor Hundley and Tommy Woodson combined for 121 yards on 14 totes with Hundley scoring while Jawon Chisholm and DJ Jones added another 80 yards to give the ground game options. Kyle Pohl and the air game was where the Zips prospered with his 326 yards and two touchdowns with LT Smith grabbing ten balls for 117 yards and a 24 yard TD.
I could see this going either way as Akron continues to improve and Miami (Ohio) taking some steps forward. I guess if I'm wrong I'd rather be with the points but would like more then 14...
