The week the Miami (OH) Redhawks travel to Akron to take on the Zips. Both Miami (2-2), and Akron (1-3) are looking to use their conference to turn around their 2012 seasons.
Few teams have faced a tougher start to the season than the Redhawks, who traveled to both Ohio State and Boise State, and as expected, lost. Through it all QB Zac Dysert has been leaned heavily on to be Miami's offense, throwing for 897 yards across their four games. His favorite target, sophomore Dawan Scott has been extremely effective, as he caught three passes for 92 yards, and two scores last week against Massachusetts.
Akron boast their own impressive QB, as Dalton Williams is one of the leading passers in the nation, throwing for over 1,200 yard he's been the reason the Zips are averaging 36 points per game. His accuracy has been suspect, but with the exception of last week's game against Tennessee he's been playing at an extremely high level.
