what to know

Considering their considerable spread disadvantage, the Akron Zips can expect a real challenge on their hands on Saturday. They will face the Liberty Flames on the road at 6pm ET at Williams Stadium. Bearing in mind that both teams suffered a defeat in the last game, both have a little more motivation for this confrontation.

The Zips might not have won anyway, but with 82 yards missed due to penalties, they really shot in the foot last week. They took a heavy blow against the Tennessee Volunteers, going down 63-6. Akron was in a tough spot halfway through, with the score already at 35-nil. One thing that held Akron back was QB DJ Irons’ mediocre play, who didn’t have his best play: he passed for 241 yards on 44 attempts.

Meanwhile, Liberty and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons were almost perfectly matched last week, but Liberty suffered an agonizing 37-36 loss. Despite the loss, Liberty had good displays from WR Demario Douglas, who caught seven passes for two TDs and 124 yards, and QB Kaidon Salter, who passed for two TDs and 258 yards on 34 attempts, as well as running for a TD and 77 yards. . .

The defeats put the Zips at 1-2 and the Flames at 2-1 reciprocal. Two stats to keep in mind while watching: Akron has yet to make an interception this season. But Liberty enter the competition after catching the ball five times, good for 12th place in the country. These opposing forces should make for an exciting showdown.
