Akron 35 @ Kent St. 69 | 11/18 | 1:00 AM UTC
Kent St. -25
ANALYSIS: Akron coach Tom Arth began his second year with 12 returning starters from an 0-12 squad - one of which wasn’t QB Kato Nelson, who is out with a shoulder injury. Freshman Zack Gibson has struggled to move the offense effectively in two losses. Kent State senior QB Dustin Crum has been starting since his freshman year and is coming off a four-TD, no-interception performance in a 62-24 win over Bowling Green. Akron has lost its two games by an average score of 41-11. I like Kent State to cover and win the Wagon Wheel for the fifth straight year.
