The Akron Zips kick off the 2017 College Bowl Games schedule for the Mid-American Conference in the Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday at 7 p.m. against Florida Atlantic University.
The Zips (7-6) matchup against the Owls (10-3) will be the first of five MAC Bowl games set for the holidays. Like many games for Akron this season, it will match a potent offense vs. the Zips bend-don’t-break defense.
“They are right there with some of the best offenses in the country, especially over the last five or six weeks,” Bowden said. “And we’ve played some very good offenses, but Lane Kiffin, his team has a great up-tempo style.”
This is actually one of the more interesting MAC bowl matchups, considering both Bowden and Kiffin have national notoriety as former SEC coaches at Auburn (Bowden) and Tennessee (Kiffin).
Florida Atlantic enters play at 10-3 (8-0) on the season. This has been a phenomenal first year for head coach Lane Kiffin in Boca Raton. His program rarely made bowls before he arrived. Now the Owls went undefeated in conference play and winning their first Conference USA Championship since joining the conference. Kiffin’s team could be a contender for the Group of 5 New Year’s Six bowl bid as early as 2018.
