Web Run: Pack won't overlook explosive Zips

Akron isn't exactly a household name in college-football circles. When N.C. State fans think of Akron, they might be more likely to think of Akron as the home of the Buckey twins - stars on State teams in the early 1970s - than as the home of the defending Mid-American Conference champions.

Akron isn't exactly a household name in college-football circles. When N.C. State fans think of Akron, they might be more likely to think of Akron as the home of the Buckey twins - stars on State teams in the early 1970s - than as the home of the defending Mid-American Conference champions.
