After a dominant win in their matchup three weeks ago, the Trojans were humbled last week. The Trojans didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 42-47 to So. Miss.
Meanwhile, Akron was the 17-10 winner over C. Michigan when they last met Oct. of last year. Last week? They had no such luck. Akron suffered a grim 24-45 defeat to C. Michigan. Akron’s loss continues a disappointing trend for the squad, making it three in a row.
The teams both will surely be scraping tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. Troy comes into the game boasting the fourth most passing yards per game in the league at 393. Less enviably, Akron is second worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 48.30 on average. So the Akron squad has its work cut out for it.
The Trojans are a big 17.5 point favorite against the Zips.
Troy won the only game these two teams have played in the last five years.
