AKRON, Ohio – With interest surrounding The University of Akron football program at an all-time high following the naming of Terry Bowden as head coach last month, season tickets are now on sale for the Zips’ much anticipated 2012 campaign. Fans can choose from a variety of economical packages that feature great amenities and provide special event access.

He owns a 140-62-2 career record and earned the 1993 national coach of the year award after leading Auburn to an 11-0 finish. In between stints at Auburn and North Alabama, he served as a television analyst with ABC college football for 10 years.

“I have really enjoyed getting to meet our enthusiastic fans and supporters during these last few weeks,” Bowden said. “We need for the community to continue to support our program and the best way to do so is by renewing or purchasing season tickets. My staff and I have been hard at work the last three weeks recruiting the next class of Zips, and we’re excited to get on the practice field this spring to begin preparing for the season.”

The Air Force Academy was thrilled when it was selected to play in the Military Bowl in our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C.

The Falcons will play the high-scoring Toledo Rockets. It’s an honor for the service academy who will be making its fifth straight bowl appearance.

The Rockets will be a tough opponent to defeat. They’re eighth in college football in scoring at 42.3 ppg, which includes five games in a row where they scored at least 44 points to end the regular season.

Both teams have offenses, but defense has been a weakness for both. Take Toledo for example, they lost to Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois, 63-60. Unbelievable!

Air Force averages 34.3 points per game and averages 320.3 in rushing per game.

Air Force comes into the game at 7-5, Toledo at 8-4.

Toledo has WR/KR Eric Page, who is speedy and elusive. He had a big-time performance in the season finale against Ball State, a 45-28 win, where he caught 16 passes for 145 yards.
