Akron vs. Eastern Michigan Prediction

Akron has been playing some bad football lately, but there is hope in this program. They have talent on both sides of the ball but this is just a very young team. Akron comes into this matchup at 1-8 and is looking to compete. Eastern Michigan is a team that plays a lot of close games and plays down to their competition. I really expect this game to be close in the first half, but it may get away from them in the second. Their defense has been decent this season and the offense needs to be better on 3rd downs for them to keep this game close.

Akron hasn’t been a wagon at all this season. But today they are going to test this Eastern Michigan defense. This EMU Defense is not that good. I’ve watched this team play a lot this year and they struggle to stop the run. They also tend to let up a lot of big plays, which is perfect for this Akron team to get their momentum going. Akron also has the home-team advantage which will benefit this young team. DJ Irons, the starting QB, is the Zips' best player. He is a dual-threat quarterback who will run and pass the ball. This quarterback style has hurt Eastern Michigan this year. Tonight's contest should be close early on and I’m riding the home underdog to start.

I’m rocking Akron in the first half only because of the young players and their hunger early on. This team is 1-8 but they have the heart as if they're undefeated. Akron will shock a lot of people tonight. They've been in close games this season and haven’t been able to finish them. Tonight they'll keep this game close in the first half!
