2019 MAC Football Game Preview “Talking sMACk”: Central Michigan Chippewas vs. Akron Zips

The first conference game of the year will take place in the third week of the season, as the Akron Zips (0-2) travel northwest to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, to face the Central Michigan Chippewas (1-1) on Saturday afternoon.

Last week wasn’t particularly fun to write home about for either side, as both experienced losses, though the degree to which both teams lost could not have been any more different.

Akron gave up a 31-point unanswered run to the UAB Blazers en route to a 31-20 loss at home, while CMU went on the road to 17th-ranked Wisconsin and were summarily dusted into the ground 61-0.
