How to watch, listen, stream: Akron Zips at Marshall Thundering Herd

Zips on the road, and it’s time to prove who they are

There’s that one family member that has distanced themselves from you, I’m sure. Doesn’t come to the family reunions. Acts like they don’t know you. Forgets your birthday, Christmas, St. Nick’s day, etc. and it doesn’t bother them at all. They are on to their new family. Such is life for Marshall and the Mid-American Conference. Back in the heyday of the early stages of MACtion, Marshall was the conference’s standard bearer. Akron comes into Saturday’s contest with a bit of an unknown factor. Last week’s loss against Wisconsin is short on takeaways because of the talent of the opponent. The reverse is true for the season-opening win over VMI. This weekend’s road contest will give some empirical evidence on whether or not Akron is the real deal and a threat for the MAC or just another squad capable of MACtion at any moment in the crowded (thanks to a lack of dominant teams) MAC East.
