The Akron Zips stand atop the MAC standings with a 12-1 conference record and a 20-8 overall record. They will earn the No. 1 seed in the 2012 MAC Tournament and the regular season championship should they beat the Ohio Bobcats on Sunday night.

The Zips already defeated the Bobcats at home, 68-63, but they won't be in the comfy confines of James A. Rhodes H&PE Building this night. The Zips are at Ohio's Convocation Center for Sunday's game. The Bobcats have won 15 of 16 home games this season, which could make all the difference in this game for Ohio.

While Ohio enters the game on a three-game winning streak, the Zips are looking to start a winning streak with three games left in the regular season. Akron beat Bowling Green, 79-68, on Wednesday after losing over the weekend, a defeat to Oral Roberts that snapped an eight-game winning streak.

Game time/date: 8:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012

Location: Convocation Center, Athens, OH

TV: ESPNU
