What to Know
The Akron Zips and the Auburn Tigers are opening their 2021 seasons against one another at 7 p.m. ET next Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Coming off of an uninspired 1-5 last-season record, Akron has set their aspirations higher this year. While Auburn was not exactly top dog last season, they did wrap up the year with a winning record of 6-5.
The Zips are expected to lose, and badly: the experts have them at a 37-point disadvantage. A win doesn’t seem in the cards, but we’ll see if they can at least keep Auburn from covering the spread.
