There is one MAC regular season game left and that will take place Friday afternoon when the Akron Zips (2-9, 1-6 in MAC) visit the Buffalo Bulls (5-6, 4-3). This game is being made up from a few weeks back when Buffalo had their huge snowstorm. Buffalo can become bowl eligible with a win in this one. Below is my college football prediction for Akron vs Buffalo.
