Instead, they nearly gave the Wolverines one heck of a shocking upset.
But than the Zips fired back with a pair of touchdowns off their own to take a 24-21 lead with 4:14 left to play. Yeah, I couldn't believe it either.
The thought of losing must have knocked the cob webs loose as the Wolverines marched down the field pretty quick (see scoring play above) to retake the lead--but the Zips were not done!
Akron QB Kyle Pohl had the Zips in position to win, but on fourth and goal from the three he had to hurry the throw and missed his receiver in the end zone.
