Today’s bowl game

The Spokesman-Review

Akron (7-5) vs. Memphis (6-5)

WHERE: Ford Field, Detroit.

TIME: 2 p.m. TV: ESPN.

KEY STATS: Akron is 25th in passing offense (262.2 ypg). Memphis is 104th in pass defense (263.9 ypg).

THE BUZZ: Memphis loves to blitz, but a MAC team (Bowling Green) picked the blitz-happy Tigers apart in a bowl last season. Akron isn’t as good as BG, but will put some points on the board. The question, then: Can DeAngelo Williams continue to do it all for the Tigers?

THE LINE: Memphis by 5 1/2 .

THE PICK: Memphis, 35-27.
