The Akron Zips will play the Buffalo Bulls in a MAC Game on Saturday afternoon at UB Stadium in Buffalo, New York.

The Akron Zips are 1-9 (0-6) this season after they lost to Eastern Michigan by a score of 34-28 in their last game. Akron out gained EMU by a total of 386-345, but turned the ball over three times and had another two turnovers on downs in the loss. The Akron offense is averaging 19.5 points per game with 283 passing yards per game and 82.3 rushing yards per game. DJ Irons (questionable) has thrown for 2,605 yards, 10 touchdowns, and seven interceptions, while also rushing for 314 yards and four touchdowns for the Zips this season. Cam Wiley has rushed for 358 yards and five scores, while Shocky Jacques-Louis has caught 65 passes for 800 yards and two touchdowns for Akron. The Akron defense is giving up 36.7 points per game and 432.2 yards per game.

The Buffalo Bulls are 5-5 (4-2) this season after they lost to Central Michigan by a score of 31-27 in their last game. Buffalo led this game 24-7 at halftime, but looked like a completely different team in the second half and couldn’t move the ball. The Buffalo offense is averaging 29.8 points per game with 236.5 passing yards per game and 151.5 rushing yards per game. Cole Snyder has thrown for 2,336 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven interceptions for the Bulls this season. Ron Cook Jr. has rushed for 600 yards and four touchdowns, while Justin Marshall has caught 45 passes for 614 yards and six scores for Buffalo. The Buffalo defense is allowing 27.4 points per game and 402.8 yards per game.

Akron is 17-35-1 ATS in their last 53 games and 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 November games. The over is 9-4 in Akron’s last 13 road games. Buffalo is 23-9-1 ATS in their last 33 home games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The over is 4-1 in Buffalo’s last 5 home games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Buffalo completely collapsed last week and it was one of the more bizarre games I have watched this year. Luckily for the Bulls, they get to bounce back and play Akron. Akron doesn’t have many wins this year, but they have played in some close games. I am not sure what to expect from Buffalo, so I am going to take the points with Akron.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
