What to Know
The Akron Zips and the Auburn Tigers will face off at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 4 at Jordan-Hare Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Returning after a rocky 1-5 season, Akron is aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Meanwhile, Auburn was on the positive side of .500 (6-5) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year.
The Zips are expected to lose, and badly: the experts have them at a 37-point disadvantage. A victory doesn’t seem in the cards, but we’ll see if they can at least keep Auburn from covering the spread.
