There's only one game left for the Akron Zips before the MAC Tournament begins in a week, and though it's not incredibly important for Akron to take the win, it would be a nice boost after two straight losses going into the tourney with a W.

Akron has dropped their past two games to Ohio and Buffalo but still have essentially a strangehold on the top seed in the MAC as long as they win against Kent State on Friday evening. The Bulls will clinch a share of the MAC East if the Zips lose and they can beat Bowling Green. Akron's goal will be to win the MAC Tournament and try to get to the NCAA Tournament and beating Kent State will be a big step to that.

The game will be at the MAC Center at 7:00 PM ET.
