The Akron Zips will welcome The Buffalo Bulls to InfoCision Stadium on Saturday afternoon in a Mid-American Conference duel. The Bulls are 3-0 as favorites this season.
Although the Bulls are favored, they’ve had a middle of the run season thus far. They already lost 2 games in conference play, falling to Western Michigan and Kent State. Buffalo kept it close against Coastal Carolina but couldn’t steal the win, falling short in a 28-25 defeat. The Bulls squeaked past Ohio last week by just one point.
The Zips haven't been able to find much magic either this season. After almost going winless last season, they’ve already grabbed a conference win. That being said, this team doesn’t have a lot going for it. With their starting QB, DJ Irons, listed as questionable, they may go with their backup. He hasn’t turned the ball over...yet. I expect the inexperience to catch up with him against this Bulls defense that has a lot to prove.
I like the Bulls here to get a decisive win against a bottom feeder in the conference. I look for them to beat up on Akron here, they need it.
