KALAMAZOO, Mich -- The Western Michigan University football team is looking to make it five straight wins as they host Akron for homecoming Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Waldo Stadium.

"We need to do a better job stopping the pass. We continue to stop the run, which is good," WMU head coach Tim Lester said. "Akron is an incredibly athletic. They are coming off a big win, so it's going to be a battle in the MAC. Everyone knows each other so well, anything is possible every single week. So we got to get healthy and get better, and then be ready for this Saturday."

The Zips beat Ball State last week and are 2-0 in the MAC. The Broncos survived a seven-overtime thriller to top Buffalo last Saturday 71-68.
