The Akron football team looks to improve to .500 as the Zips travel to Knoxville to take on Tennessee at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The game will be on ESPN3 and Comcast Sports South.

Akron (1-2) is coming off it's first win of the season, beating Morgan State 66-6 last week. The game represented a vast improvement for the Akron defense, which had given up 56 and 41 points in back-to-back losses to open the season.

Tennessee is 2-1 after losing to No. 18 Florida last week. The Vols have been led this season by quarterback Tyler Bray, who is completing 64 percent of his passes for 900 yards, 8 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson give the team a couple of big play receivers in the passing game. They've combined for 534 yards and 5 touchdowns this season.
