What is a Zip? One of the unique nicknames in all of intercollegiate athletics belongs to The University of Akron. Originally Zippers, athletic director Kenneth “Red” Cochrane officially shortened the nickname to the Zips in 1950. Twentyfive years earlier a campus-wide contest had been conducted to choose a nickname for The University’s athletics teams. Suggestions submitted by students, faculty, and alumni included Golden Blue Devils, Tip Toppers, Rubbernecks, Hillbillies, Kangaroos and Cheveliers. The winner, freshman Margaret Hamlin, received a prize of $10 for Zippers, a $6 pair of rubber overshoes and a brand name of the BF Goodrich Company. The evolution of Zippy, UA’s mascot, began 40 years ago when the student council decided the University needed a mascot. “Zippy” the kangaroo was officially declared the school’s mascot on May 1, 1953. In 2007, Zippy was named the Capital One National Mascot of the Year. One fun fact about Zippy, she is the only female mascot to represent an entire Division I athletics department.

THE MID-AMERICAN CONFERENCE THIS IS THE MID-AMERICAN CONFERENCE Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 65th year of service to the student-athlete.

In 1946 men’s basketball was the first competitive sport in the MAC, which now sponsors a total 23 sports. Women’s sports were brought into the conference’s structure in 1980. For men, championships (11) are sponsored in football, basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, golf and tennis. For women, championships (12) are sponsored in basketball, softball, volleyball, cross country, field hockey, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, gymnastics, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis.

From two-time Super Bowl quarterback winning Ben Roethlisberger (Miami University), NFL Defensive MVP James Harrison (Kent State University), three NFL Pro Bowlers (Cleveland KR Josh Cribbs, San Diego TE Antonio Gates, Pittsburgh LB James Harrison), British Open winner Ben Curtis (Kent State University), World Series winning manager Bob Brenly (Ohio University) and Olympic bobsled team member Brock Kreitzburgh (University of Toledo), the Mid-American Conference continues to excel in producing leaders in the world of athletics. In Super Bowl XLV between Green Bay and Pittsburgh there were 15 former MAC studentathletes on rosters competing in the Super Bowl, including nine with the Packers and six with the Steelers, and six former MAC players were named to the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl.

RECORDS

In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC is in the third year of its eightyear rights agreement (through 2016-2017 academic years) for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal is the most extensive in the 65-year history of the conference. The agreement calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games.

2010 REVIEW

For the first time in its 65-year history, the MAC will have eight bowl relationships--three primary and five secondary. The three primary agreements are with the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl (Detroit, Mich.), GoDaddy. com Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) and uDrove Humanitarian Bowl (Boise, Ida.). In addition, the MAC has secured secondary agreements with the BBVA Compass Bowl (2011-2013), the New Mexico Bowl (2011-2013), the Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl (2011-13), the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (2011) and the TicketCity Bowl (2012).

Based in Cleveland since July 1999 following a 15-year stay in Toledo, Ohio, the MAC has established historic measurements in both football and men’s and women’s basketball since moving to Northeast Ohio. The MAC was founded as a five-school league on February 24, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio with Ohio, Butler, Cincinnati, Wayne State and Western Reserve admitted as charter members. The Mid-American Conference has 12 full-time schools and a 13th, Temple, and 14th, UMass for football only (beginning in 2012). Comprising the East Division is the University of Akron (joined in 1992), Bowling Green State University (1952), University at Buffalo (1998), Kent State University (1951), Miami University (1947), Ohio University (1946) and Temple University (2007). The West Division members are Ball State University (1973), Central Michigan University (1971), Eastern Michigan University (1971), Northern Illinois University (1975-86, 1997), University of Toledo (1950) and Western Michigan University (1947).

STAFF

In 2010, four MAC programs received bowl invitations and it marked the first time in conference history that the MAC had four or more teams receive bowl invitations in a three-year consecutive span. In addition, the MAC has sent four or more teams to bowl games in five of the last seven years. The four MAC programs that played in bowl games were: Miami (GoDaddy.com Bowl), Northern Illinois (uDrove Humanitarian Bowl), Toledo (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl) and Ohio (R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl). The MAC record for bowl appearances is five, which happened in consecutive years (2008, 2009) and only three times (2004, 2008, 2009) in conference history. The 2010 season also witnessed Miami win the 2010 Marathon MAC Championship and record the best turnaround in college football with an eight win improvement over the previous season (1-11 in 2009). Northern Illinois entered the Marathon MAC Football Championship ranked No. 23 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 24 in the Associated Press Poll. Two more MAC teams defeated Big Ten opponents during the regular season as Northern Illinois defeated Minnesota, 34-23 in Minneapolis, while Toledo rolled to a 31-20 win at Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind.

HISTORY OF THE MAC

STUDENT-ATHLETES

The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and baseball (Avon, Ohio All Pro Freight Stadium).

AKRON FOOTBALL

Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 65-year history of the league in March of 2009. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference.

• Prior to being hired at Akron, Ianello was a member of the coaching staff at Notre Dame from 2005-09. He coached the Irish in the 2008 Hawai’i Bowl, 2007 Sugar Bowl and 2006 Fiesta Bowl. • From 2005-08 at Notre Dame, he served as wide receivers coach and coordinated the recruiting efforts of the Irish. In January 2009, he was promoted to assistant head coach for offense. In that role, he led offensive staff meetings when head coach Charlie Weis was not present, and later served as the team’s interim head coach. • Notre Dame’s 2009 offense ranked sixth nationally in passing offense (323.50 ypg) and ninth in total offense (451.75 ypg). • As the recruiting coordinator for the Irish, he directed three consecutive top-10 recruiting classes from 2006-08, something only three other schools (USC, Florida and Georgia) could claim. • Ianello is the only coach named one of the 25-best recruiters nationally from 2005-09 by Rivals.com. In the book “The Second Season” by recruiting analyst Tom Lemming, Ianello is named one of the top-10 recruiters of the last 30 years. • Ianello had two coaching stints at Wisconsin (1990-93, 2003-04), and was part of a staff that helped lead the Badgers to the 1994 Rose Bowl, the 2003 Music City Bowl and the 2005 Outback Bowl. • From 1994-2002, Ianello was on staff at Arizona, serving as recruiting coordinator from 1994-96, and wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator from 1997-2002. The Wildcats played in two bowl games, the 1997 Insight.com Bowl and the 1998 Holiday Bowl. • Born Nov. 4, 1965, Ianello is a native of Port Chester, N.Y., and is a 1987 graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., owning a bachelor’s degree in English. • Ianello and his wife, the former Denise Dove, have one son, Zachary, and two daughters, Ashley and Courtney. Denise is a former assistant women’s basketball coach at Arizona and Wisconsin, and has worked as a scout in the WNBA.

AKRON, Ohio - The University of Akron football team suffered a 38-37 defeat to Gardner-Webb in overtime Saturday at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field despite 229 combined rushing yards from Alex Allen and Nate Burney.

Chandler Jones blocked Igor Iveljic’s attempt at the Syracuse 39, allowing Holmes to pick it up at the 43 and go untouched, making it 23-3 in the third quarter.

Allen, who rushed for 110 yards on 20 carries, found the end zone three times while Burney broke off 119 yards on 17 carries in the losing effort. With the setback, UA fell to 0-2 on the season.

Ryan Nassib added two touchdowns and 229 yards on 17-for-27 passing as the Orange won their season opener for the first time since 2003. He connected with Aaron Weaver for a 23-yard score on the game’s first series and found Van Chew for a 26-yard touchdown five seconds before halftime for a 17-3 lead at intermission. The Zips got on the scoreboard with just over a minute left in the first half, thanks to a 40-yard field goal by Iveljic.

Jeremy LaFrance had seven catches for 75 yards to lead UA’s receiving corps.

AKRON, Ohio - The University of Akron football team suffered a 50-14 defeat to MidAmerican Conference West Division favorite Northern Illinois on rainy Saturday night at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field.

KENT, Ohio - The University of Akron football team fell 28-17 to Mid-American Conference East Division foe and neighborhood rival Kent State on Saturday at Dix Stadium.

Senior running back Alex Allen rushed for 99 yards and two touchdowns in the losing effort for UA. Akron took a 7-3 lead midway through the first quarter after Allen punched the ball in on a 1-yard carry. But NIU answered with 26 unanswered points to take a 29-7 lead into the locker room at halftime and never looked back.

With the defeat, the Zips dropped to 0-6 overall and 0-2 in MAC play, while the Golden Flashes improved to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the conference standings. The loss ended a three-game UA winning streak in the all-time series with KSU, and the Golden Flashes regained possession of the coveted Wagon Wheel. Alex Allen led the Zips with 51 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown, his team-leading sixth of the season. Jeremy LaFrance added a 10-yard score on a fake field goal to go along with 75 yards receiving on six catches. Allen’s two-yard run gave Akron an early 7-0 lead, capping its second drive of the day. That score was set up by a roughing the passer call on Kent State on third-and-4 and a 34-yard sprint by Jalil Carter. Akron forced a Kent State punt to open the third quarter and drove 71 yards on 12 plays to close within 21-17 with 5:47 on the clock. LaFrance scored on the ground from 10 yards out on a fake field goal, acting as the holder. The Zips’ drive was kept alive thanks to a facemask penalty by KSU on third-and-27, resulting in an automatic first down.

The Zips made one last push, cutting into the deficit on their first offensive series of the second half. Allen sparked the drive with a career-long, 74-yard rush up the middle to the NIU 1-yard line and found the end zone two plays later to make it 29-14.

ATHENS, Ohio - The University of Akron football team suffered a 38-10 loss to Ohio University on Saturday afternoon in a Mid-American Conference game at Peden Stadium. The Bobcats (4-3, 3-1 MAC) scored the first 24 points of the contest and kept the Zips (0-7, 0-3) off the scoreboard until less than a minute remained in the first half. UA closed out that first half with a nine-play, 57-yard drive that ended with a 39-yard field goal by Igor Iveljic with 48 seconds to go. The drive was highlighted by a 43-yard run by quarterback Patrick Nicely. Nicely completed 16-of-29 passes for 159 yards and had two interceptions. He was spelled by Matt Rodgers for the final play of the third quarter and all of the fourth. Rodgers completed all five of his passes for 47 yards and was responsible for UA’s one touchdown, connecting with freshman Austin Bailey with 5:59 remaining in the game to end the scoring production for the day for both squads. It was Bailey’s first collegiate touchdown reception. Nate Burney carried the ball 12 times for 32 yards and also had two catches for 18 yards for the Zips.

The Owls (7-2, 4-1) blocked a 42-yard field goal attempt by Igor Iveljic with 30 seconds left in the first half, and held to a 6-0 lead at the break thanks to two Brandon McManus’ field goals. Iveljic’s scoring try was sparked by a Temple turnover. Shawn Lemon tallied his teamleading seventh sack of the season and caused Owls’ quarterback Mike Gerardi to fumble. Lemon also recovered the loose ball at the TU 32 yard line. Akron moved the ball as far as the 25 and in a fourth and three situation sent in Iveljic, but Kee-ayre Griffin deflected the kick.

Akron quarterback Patrick Nicely completed 15-of-26 passes for 134 yards, had one interception and was sacked four times. Brian Wagner led the UA defense with a gamehigh 10 tackles.

AKRON, Ohio - The University of Akron football team led by four early in the second half, but couldn’t hold on as Miami (Ohio) came from behind to hand the Zips a 19-14 defeat on Wednesday night at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field.

AKRON, Ohio - Behind three touchdown passes by quarterback Patrick Nicely, The University of Akron football team earned a 22-14 victory over visiting Buffalo at InfoCision-Stadium-Summa Field on Friday in the final game of the season.

Akron (0-11, 0-7 Mid-American Conference) suffered the setback despite a pair of big contributions from running back Alex Allen and wide receiver Jalil Carter. Allen rushed for a team-high 134 yards and two touchdowns, while Carter recorded seven receptions for 119 yards.

With the win, the Zips (1-11, 1-7 Mid-American Conference) finished the year on a good note for its 16 seniors, who were honored before the game. Buffalo ended the season with a 2-10 record overall and a 1-7 mark in MAC play.

The Zips took a 14-10 lead on their second play from scrimmage after halftime when Allen broke a 91-yard run up the middle for his second touchdown of the night. It was the longest run of Allen’s career and the fourth-longest run from scrimmage by any Akron player in school history. Miami (7-4, 6-1) regained the lead on a pair of field goals - from 25 and 27 yards - from Trevor Cook and took a 16-14 advantage into the fourth quarter. Cook provided the game’s final margin with his fourth field goal of the night - a 32-yarder - that pushed the RedHawks’ lead to five with 4:58 left on the clock. Akron battled back - converting a fourth-and-1 on a trick play that had Allen complete a 13-yard pass to quarterback Patrick Nicely - and had a chance to pull out a dramatic victory, but Jeremy LaFrance fumbled on Miami’s 13-yard line after a quick pass from Nicely with 1:46 to go. The RedHawks recovered the ball and ran the clock out to escape with the win. SCORING SUMMARY: 2nd 14:56 AKRON - ALLEN, Alex 1 yd run (IVELJIC, Igor kick) 12 plays, 91 yards, TOP 5:19 12:40 MIAMI - MERRIWEATHER, T 4 yd run (COOK, Trevor kick) 5 plays, 67 yards, TOP 2:11 04:20 MIAMI - COOK, Trevor 22 yd field goal 11 plays, 75 yards, TOP 5:37 3rd 14:36 AKRON - ALLEN, Alex 91 yd run (IVELJIC, Igor kick) 2 plays, 91 yards, TOP 0:17 06:46 MIAMI - COOK, Trevor 25 yd field goal 6 plays, 71 yards, TOP 2:24 00:24 MIAMI - COOK, Trevor 27 yd field goal 8 plays, 44 yards, TOP 4:47 4th 04:58 MIAMI - COOK, Trevor 32 yd field goal 12 plays, 69 yards, TOP 5:30

Nicely connected on 13-of-24 passes for 193 yards and made a number of big plays down the stretch. Seniors Alex Allen and Jalil Carter also enjoyed strong performances, with each going over 100 yards, respectively. Allen rushed a career-high 32 times for 106 yards and Carter had five receptions for 109 yards, including his second touchdown of the season. Holding on to a 22-7 lead late in the fourth quarter, the Zips had to hold off a late surge by the Bulls, who scored a quick touchdown and recovered the ensuing on-side kick with 1:52 left in regulation. UB quarterback Jerry Davis led his team all the way down to Akron’s 17-yard line as the Bulls, down by eight points, threatened to send the game into overtime. But sophomore linebacker Brian Wagner, who shared the team lead with senior linebacker Mike Thomas with 14 tackles, made one final big play for the defense by stripping the ball free from Davis on first-and-10. Senior linebacker Shawn Lemon jumped on the loose ball to officially end the rally and send the Zips to their first victory of the year.

Memphis 38, Akron 31 Ford Field • Detroit, Mich. Dec. 26, 2005

DETROIT (AP) - DeAngelo Williams lived up to the hype. Williams set an NCAA record with his 34th 100-yard rushing game and scored three touchdowns, leading Memphis to a 38-31 victory over Akron in the Motor City Bowl. Williams ran for 233 yards on 30 carries and finished his career with 6,021 yards rushing - trailing only Ron Dayne, Ricky Williams and Tony Dorsett in Division I-A history - and an NCAA-record 7,568 allpurpose yards. The Tigers (7-5) took a 21-point lead with 3:09 left, but needed to recover an onside kick with 55 seconds left to seal the win after Luke Getsy threw his fourth touchdown pass to cut the lead to seven points. Akron (7-6) made a good showing in its first Division I-A bowl game after scoring 21 fourth-quarter points to beat Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game. “This became an awakening around the campus and the town,” Zips coach J.D. Brookhart said. “To come out and see that wave of blue and gold on the sideline was awesome.” Getsy was 34-for-59 for a Motor City Bowl-record 455 yards, and tied Chad Pennington’s mark for passing touchdowns in the bowl’s nine-year history. Jabari Arthur broke Randy Moss’s bowl record with 180 yards receiving, scoring twice on eight receptions. The Tigers led by 10 at halftime after scoring on three straight drives, then pulled away in the second half with three TDs and a field goal in four drives before nearly collapsing in the final minutes. It was a wild finish - with 46 points scored in the final 15:46 - after Akron led 3-0 midway through the first quarter. The teams combined for 1,018 yards of offense. Williams broke 100-yard games mark in the third quarter when he ran up the middle and bounced to the outside on an 18-yard carry. After Getsy threw a 72-yard TD pass to Brett Biggs early in the fourth quarter to cut Akron’s deficit to 23-17, Williams showed his speed and power. He burst through a small hole in the middle of the line and sprinted for a 67-yard gain to set up his 2-yard, linemen-dragging TD for his third score, tying the bowl record. Williams, who finished seventh in voting for the Heisman, was taken out of the game midway through the fourth quarter while Memphis was driving for its 38-17 lead. He finished 4 yards rushing short of the Motor City Bowl record set by Northwestern’s Jason Wright against Bowling Green in 2003. A crowd of 50,616 attended the game in Ford Field, where the Super Bowl was played in 2006.
