Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Akron Zips and Liberty Flames face off on Saturday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Williams Stadium. This is the first meeting between the two teams in recent history. 

Akron comes into this game with a 1-2 record overall and it looks like it’s going to be another terrible season. In the first game of the season against St. Francis, it was Akron that secured the 30-23 victory. Two games ago against Michigan State they lost 52-0, and in the last game against Tennessee, they lost 63-6. Under center for Akron is DJ Irons and against Tennessee, he completed 32 of his 44 passes for 241 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. One issue was Akron couldn’t get anything going on the ground, and that is going to need to be improved upon here. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Liberty Flames who sit with a 2-1 record and the only loss was by a point against Wake Forest. Liberty in the first game of the season Southern Miss 29-27, and in the last game against UAB they won 21-14. Under center for Liberty is Kaidon Salter and against Wake Forest, he completed 19 of his 34 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Dae Dae Hunter finished with 18 rushes for 93 yards and a touchdown. The Liberty are averaging 26.7 points while their defense is giving up 26 points per game. 

Liberty is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against the MAC. Akron is 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games in September. The Flames are 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Akron’s offense has really struggled this season and they aren’t going to magically breakout of that here. Look for Liberty to have strong play from Kaidon Salter, and Akron isn’t going to keep up. Two games ago Akron gave up 52 points, and Liberty is going to have no issue running up the score here. This game is going to be an easy victory for Liberty and they are going to cover the spread.
