The Eastern Michigan Eagles (4-6, 2-4 MAC) battle the Akron Zips (2-8, 1-5 MAC) on Tuesday night in an all-MAC affair. EMU lost to Toledo 49-23 last game, their third loss in a row and fifth consecutive road defeat. They’ll be glad to be back home, where they’ve gone 3-1. Akron is coming off of an embarrassing 19-0 loss, their seventh loss of their past eight. The Eagles have won each of the three head-to-head meetings versus Akron, but they can’t underestimate their conference foes.
Will Eastern Michigan get back on track, or will Akron finally get their first home win?

The Zips have one of the worst offensive units in all of college football, and even though EMU’s defense is only decent, the Eagles do well to limit the passing game. On the other side, EMU struggles to move the ball, and their 34.6% third-down rate doesn’t help.
These defenses aren’t exactly top-notch, but both schools will have trouble putting points up on the board. Take the under here on senior night.
Under 39 (-110)
