In one of only a handful of potential blowouts in week one, the Akron Zips have a titanic task against the Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday night. The Huskers ride in high after hiring Scott Frost to return to his alma mater after a “national championship” at UCF. The Zips and Terry Bowden are attempting to set a tone for the 2018. Keep it close or pull the upset and Akron could be a darkhorse contender for the MAC. A lopsided affair and it might be indicative of a backslide this season for the Zips.
