Akron Is Losing Badly In Orlando At Halftime

It didn't take long. In fact it took less than one minute. On the second play of the Akron Zips first game the team found itself trailing, after allowing a 91-yard touchdown pass from Blake Brotles to Breshad Perriman.

If that wasn't bad enough for Akron, coughed up a fumble and gave up another TD pass from Brotles all in the first quarter.

Basically, Akron is getting manhandled and trails 24-0 at the half.

UCF is controlling the game, marching the ball up and down the field like it's nothing. Brotles has thrown three TD's, and is 13-for-19 with 248 yards. Perriman has 113 yards on three receptions. Meanwhile Akron is averaging less than 4 yards per play.

The Zips have been out gained 310 to 64, and new Zips quarterback Kyle Pohl has manged half of those yards on 6-of-8 passing. But, it's not all bad news for the Zips. Punter Zach Paul is having a hell of a game. He's punted four times for 199 yards.
