Starting the Championship weekend for the NCAA football schedule, we have a matchup between 2 Mid American Conference opponents Akron Zips and Buffalo Bulls. Both NCAAF teams have definitely looked shaky this season but are searching for that one perfect performance to end 2022 with a positive attitude.
This game was sadly delayed from November 19 because of a massive snowstorm that hit Buffalo, New York at the time. That same natural occurrence made the Buffalo Bills face the Cleveland Browns back in Detroit that same weekend. Unfortunately, the MAC doesn’t have the same resources or income as the NFL to make that game start on a planned time.
The Zips are currently 2-9 going into this matchup with a season they will want to never reenact again for the Ohio natives. Last week they managed to defeat Northern Illinois 44-12, which thankfully for them broke their 9 consecutive game losing streak. Akron is averaging a low 21.7 points per game while receiving an average of 34.5 points per game on their defense side.
Looking at their offense, quarterback Jeff Undercuffler threw for 3 touchdowns last week. Thanks to his accuracy the Zips were able to win their first MAC win in the season.
They will look to continue this momentum in this last game to finish the year on a positive note.
The Bulls have a bigger and more talented roster than Akron in 2022. They have a promising set of defensive backs that can play well in the MAC. The defense has barely allowed 212.7 passing yards per game this time around. Offensively, Buffalo has more options than Akron, mainly via the ground with rushes being a key focus for the squad.
This game is a key matchup for Buffalo because they need it to have a chance and grab their 6th win, which would make them a possible bowl eligible team.
This time around looking at the talent for both teams we heavily lean towards a Buffalo win.
