University of Akron head football Rob Ianello admits that his team had a 'jump' in their step when they resumed practice earlier this week.
That 'jump' followed their 36-13 victory over VMI Saturday at InfoCision Stadium.
This coming Saturday, the Zips jump back into Mid-American Conference play at Eastern Michigan.
With eight games remaining in the season, Ianello hopes that his players look forward to the remainder of this season and not the 2012 campaign.
Akron has been getting solid offensive production from two players, running back Jawon Chisolm and wide receiver Keith Sconiers. Chisolm ran for 188 yards and one touchdown in the VMI win. Sconiers caught 8 passes for `54 yards and two touchdowns.
Eastern Michigan has victories over Howard and Alabama State this season and losses to Michigan and Penn State.
