For Akron, this opening game against VMI is an opportunity to put their skills on display in front of a home crowd against an opponent that should be an easy victory for the Zips. Of course, people said the same thing about Buffalo last night but when we tell you VMI is bad, we aren’t lying. It’s been decades since the Keydets have had a winning season, and this isn’t a Cinderella upstart out of nowhere. Akron wins every matchup on the field and this will be a good opportunity for Zips players and fans to build some confidence going forward for 2016.
