    The Akron 2024 football schedule begins with a short trip down the I-77 and I-70. As road trips go, the 164-mile journey is one of the simplest travels on the calendar, but that’s where the ease ends as the Zips open the season against the highly talented Ohio State Buckeyes team that should challenge for ultimate glory at the end of the 2024 college football campaign.

    That clash in Columbus headlines a difficult out-of-conference slate on the Akron 2024 football schedule. Remaining in Big Ten country, the Zips travel to “The Birthplace” to face Rutgers in Week 2 before taking a trip to SEC country with the South Carolina Gamecocks in Week 4. An FCS matchup against the Colgate Raiders in Week 3 offers some relief and a potential win.

    While they avoid the reigning champion Miami RedHawks in MAC play, a trip to Athens to face the Ohio Bobcats and a season-ending matchup with the Toledo Rockets mean they face two championship front-runners in conference play.
