Akron 22, UB 14, final: Who's winning the Alabama-Auburn game?
Yep, fumble: Akron is in victory formation. The Gatorade bath for Rob Ianello.
Another fumble?: Davis fumbles again and is recovered by Akron on the 41. The play is being reviewed by MAC officials which means they might consider this an incomplete pass.
Call reversed: Ruled an incomplete pass. UB's ball. MAC refs are college football's finest.
Fumble: Davis was stripped from behind and CB Anthony Holmes recovered on the Bulls 38. Play is under review.
Bulls recover onside kick: Allen touched the ball and the Bulls recovered. 1st and 10 from UB 38.
Bulls score!: TD pass from Davis to Neutz for the second time in the game. Bulls called for an illegal formation on the PAT when Jeffvon Gill ran onto the field after everyone was lined up. The second PAT was good. Akron 22, UB 14. Time for an onside kick.
Injury: CB Josh Thomas went down briefly but walked off the field.
Injury: LB Raphael Akobundu was helped off the field by trainers.
INT by Akron: I know we're in Ohio, but why are the Bulls making Akron look like Ohio State?
Akron 22, UB 7: Let me get this straight: Akron's Igor Ivelijic, who missed two PATs, nails a 39-yard FG?! The Zips are a team of destiny!
Injury: LB Justin Winters went down briefly and walked off the field.
Akron 19, UB 7, end of third quarter: The Bulls are 15 minutes away from losing to the only winless team in the FBS. A loss would complete a total nose dive from the championship season of 2008.
Akron 19, UB 7: Do the Bulls defenders ever turn around when the ball is thrown? Nicely throws a 15-yard pass over the head of John Syty to Gary Pride for a score. It was Pride's first career TD. First time for everything, I guess.
Broken record: Davonte Shannon is the school career leader in tackles. The senior safety reached the mark late in the second quarter and has five for the game.
Akron 12, UB 7: Davis throws a pretty pass in between defenders Kevin Davis and Manley Waller to a leaping Neutz for a 13-yard TD. It was the first time today that the Bulls reached the red zone.
Fumble recovery: Winters forced a fumble on Alex Allen and UB's Josh Thomas recovered on the Bulls 16-yard line.
Akron 12, UB 0, halftime: Alex Neutz hurt on the final play of the half.
Akron 12, UB 0: Nicely to Jeremy LaFrance. Missed PAT. 39 seconds left in the first half. LaFrance has been at Akron forever.
INT: Stop me if you heard this before. The ball bounces off Marcus Rivers hands and into the hands of a defender. This time it was Akron's Josh Richmond, his first career pick.
Akron 6, UB 0: Patrick Nicely's 8-yard pass to Jalil Carter goes for a TD. Of course, Akron missed the PAT wide left.
Blocked punt: Bill Alexander blocked Jacob Schum's punt and Akron recovered on the UB 19. The snap was so bad and had so much air underneath that Schum could have called a fair catch.
Success!: We finally have more first downs (eight) than punts (seven). Can't believe some people are watching Auburn-Alabama instead of this one.
Stopped on 4th down: UB had the ball on the Akron 34 and Davis was flushed from the pocket. His pass was nearly picked off. Might as well roll the dice when you're 2-9.
Scoreless after one quarter: The teams have combined for more punts (six) than first downs (five) and have 126 yards of total offense. A real barn burner.
Sack: Akron started at midfield but now is now on its 45 after UB DE Steven Means took him down. Means now has 41/2 sacks this season.
Offensive outburst: There's 4:46 left in the first quarter and both teams have combined for four first downs.
All in the family: Akron CB Manley Waller is the son of Olympic gold medalist Gwen Torrence and his father, Manley, was an All-American track athlete at Georgia.
Injury: Marr went down but walked off the field.
Pregame: Today's captains for UB are Justin Winters, Mike Marr, Jerry Housey and A.J. Principe. All 16 seniors for Akron served as captains.
