 AKRON: The Zips (1-5, 0-2) were dismantled on their home field as they

 let a 9-7 third quarter lead slip away and lost, 21-9, to Central Michigan in
 their MAC opener. Coach Don Treadwell was relieved of his duties following the
 setback and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach Mike Bath was promoted to

 yards. CMU was flagged only twice for 24 yards. Bath will lead the RedHawks as
 they play their first road MAC game on Saturday at Massachusetts.

 in a rematch of the 2012 MAC Championship at Dix Stadium. Lynch finished with
 244 yards and two touchdowns against a pair of interceptions on 21-of-35

 overshadowed by Cameron Stingily, who tallied 266 rushing yards and a pair of
 touchdowns on 37 rushing attempts. NIU amassed 698 yards of total offense and

 rankings on Saturday when they take on Akron at home.
 OHIO UNIVERSITY: The Bobcats (4-1, 1-0) were sharp on both sides of the ball
 during their 43-3 rout of Akron at InfoCision Stadium. Tyler Tettleton

 only 87 rushing yards on 40 attempts. The Broncos also committed four
 turnovers without registering a takeaway in the lopsided setback. Toledo
 jumped out to a 47-7 lead before allowing WMU to score 13 fourth quarter
 points once the game was all but over. The Rockets have week seven off before
 their Oct. 19 non-conference tilt versus Navy.
 WESTERN MICHIGAN: First-year head coach P.J. Fleck is still winless after his
 Broncos (0-6, 0-2) were defeated, 47-20, by Toledo in MAC action at the Glass
 Bowl. WMU allowed 528 yards of total offense including 360 yards rushing. The

 9-of-19 for 104 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Corey Davis led
 the Broncos in receiving with five catches and 77 yards. Zach Terrell saw
 action under center and hit on 10-of-13 pass attempts for 184 yards with one
