The Akron Zips get their postseason underway on Tuesday night with a visit to Chicago to face a BCS conference opponent in Northwestern.

The Zips are looking to rebound from their heartbreaking MAC Tournament Championship game loss to the Ohio Bobcats. The Wildcats saw their tournament hopes fade down the stretch, and it became academic after their overtime loss to Minnesota in their first game at the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis. The Wildcats are favored by 6.5 points.

Game Date/Time: Tuesday, March 13, 9:00 p.m. ET

Venue: Welsh-Ryan Arena, Evanston, IL
