Akron will be coming into this game with a defense that was missing in the last game and it was a problem as the Zips have lost the last 4 games they have played in. What is really bad is the Zips ended up losing to the Bobcats by a score of 49 to 28. What really hurt was the lack of defense the Zips had showing up in the game.
Kato Nelson has led the Zips from his quarterback position with 2151 yards and 15 touchdowns on the year. The leading rusher for the Zips is Van Edwards Jr. who carried 147 times for 558 yards and 3 scores.
The Gamecocks are coming into the game after a very tough SEC game. However, the Gamecocks are coming into the game after putting in 35 points to the Tigers. The problem is the Gamecocks gave up 56 points in the game and that is what really led to the loss was the overpowering offense, which the Gamecocks do not have to worry about in this game.

Free Betting Pick: South Carolina Gamecocks -29
The Gamecocks gave the Clemson squad a run for their money in the last game out and finally toppled in the game. The Zips were trashed by an Ohio Bobcats team and that was something that the Zips would like to have a chance to avoid again, but they are facing a very strong team from South Carolina who will dominate offensively. Final Score Prediction, South Carolina Gamecocks win and cover ATS 48-10.
