Akron Zips Season Preview Since winning the 2005 MAC title, Akron has suffered 3 losing campaigns in a row. One encouraging sign is that, despite having a horrid defense last season (90th in the nation) the Zips were in contention for a bowl game late in the season, finishing at 5-7. Perhaps playing in new InfoCision Stadium will give the Zips the boost they need to get back to the post season. Ten Best Zip Players 1. LB/S Mike Thomas, Jr. 2. DT Almondo Sewell, Jr. 3.
