There were so many possible ways this game could have gone. No one expected the Zips to dominate from start to finish in one of the best team performances in a very long time.
Akron jumped out early with touchdowns on two of their first three drives of the game in route to taking a 14-0 lead. Louisiana finally respond with a 7-play, 75-yad dire, capped by a 17-yard touchdown run from Elijah McGuire to cut the Akron lead to 14-7.
Louisiana had a chance to tie the game late in the first half, but a fourth-and-goal at the one was stonewalled, sending the Ragin' Cajuns off with no points. The score at halftime was 14-7 in favor of Akron.
The Zips essentially put the game away with back-to-back touchdown drives to start the second half that extended the Akron lead to 35-7.
Louisiana added a garbage time score with 6:22 remaining to make up the final 35-7 shoreline.
The Ragin' Cajuns have no time to regroup with a tip to Louisiana Tech next on the schedule.
