Akron was a team of two halves last week, struggling early against VMI but putting them away late en route to a 1-0 record. Wisconsin had a decidedly tougher time with their opponent, #6 LSU, in Green Bay. Wisconsin would go on to win 16-14 in one of the most surprising outcomes of week 1. For the Zips, this is an opportunity to prove their prognosticated success for 2016 isn’t a fluke or hype. Akron fans are hoping for a good showing against a stellar opponent, but the Zips are hoping for a program defining win.
