We're going to find out a lot about both of these teams, as neither schedule has been difficult, so the jury is still out. However, the Akron Zips and their play has to have your attention through 4 games as they've been on fire at both ends and their offensive depth is worth paying attention to. Akron looks like it could be a factor in the MAC this year. I like what I'm seeing early. I'm on the bandwagon. Give me the Zips.
