Akron has yet to figure out how to win on the year so far. The Zips have not won a single game on the year and in the last game the offense was completely missing. The Zips were unable to score at all in the game and ended up losing the game to Buffalo 21-0. The worst part is the defense for the Zips actually looked impressive in the loss.
Akron on the season has not been strong offensively at all. The team has only managed to get 14.3 points a game on the year. The team has thrown the ball for 252 yards a game, but have ran the ball for only 56 yards a game. The defense for the Zips is giving up 36 points a game on average, but has allowed 239 yards per game in the air and 200 yards a game on the ground.
Northern Illinois is coming into this game after losing by 3 points to Miami of Ohio. The game was a close loss for the Huskies who ended up dropping the game by only 3 points. However, it pushed their record to the point they are now sitting 4 games under the five hundred mark and definitely do not look like a team that will be able to improve upon that mark too much.
The Huskies offense has managed to score at a rate of 21 points a game, but have thrown the ball for 279 yards a game on the year and have ran the ball for 109 yards a game. The defense for the Huskies has managed to give up only 29.3 points a game. The Huskies have allowed only 195 yards a game in the air and 180 yards a game on the ground.
Akron has looked horrible all year long. That is definitely going to present a problem Zips in this game as the Huskies at least know what victory taste like on the year and also know how to play the game to win. The Huskies also know how to play defense and that will show up in this game as the Zips are unable to do a lot offensively. Final Score Prediction, Northern Illinois Huskies win, but do not cover 21-7.
