Akron beats UMass 30-6 behind 2 touchdown passes from Pohl


AKRON, Ohio — Kyle Pohl passed for 277 yards and two touchdowns and Akron beat UMass 30-6 on Tuesday night.

Pohl had touchdown passes of 7 yards to L.T. Smith in the first quarter and 12 yards to Conor Hundley in the second quarter. Those touchdowns and a pair of field goals by Robert Stein had the Zips (5-6, 3-4 Mid-American) ahead 20-0 at halftime.

The Minutemen (3-8, 3-4) scored on Austin Whipple's 1-yard pass to Jean Sifrin early in the third quarter before Hundley ran 12 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter and Stein added a third field goal in the fourth quarter.

The Zips dominated in total yards 411-235, with the Minutemen gaining just 67 yards on the ground. Zach D'Orazio made 10 catches for 121 yards for Akron.

Whipple was intercepted three times and the Minutemen lost a fumble in the cold, snowy conditions that included wind chills in the zero-degree range.
