Akron at Bowling Green

■ Time: 2:30 p.m.

■ Records: Akron is 1-3, 0-0 MAC; BG is 3-1, 1-0 MAC

■ Radio: 1470, 99.1

■ Favorite: BGSU by 15

■ Notes: The Zips bring a 28-game road losing streak to Doyt Perry Stadium, having not won away from home since 2008. … BG also has won the last four meetings of these two schools and has not lost to the Zips at the Doyt since 2005. … Akron ranks third in the MAC in passing offense (258.8 yards per game) while BG is second (292.8 yards per game). … While the Zips are 11th in the league in pass defense (295.2 yards allowed per game), they do have five interceptions. The Falcons are fourth in the MAC in pass defense (216.8 yards allowed per game) but are the only league school without a pick. … Akron kicker Robert Stein is the brother of former BG kicker Stephen Stein, who now works on the staff of Falcons’ video coordinator Chris Zuccaro. … With a victory BG would improve to 4-1 for the first time since the 2003 team started 7-1 and finished 11-3, including a win over Northwestern in the Motor City Bowl.
