Massachusetts beats Akron 22-14 for 1st FBS win

AP - Sports

AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Four Massachusetts interceptions led to 19 points as the Minutemen won for the first time at the Football Bowl Subdivision level, defeating Akron 22-14 Saturday.

Mike Wegzyn completed 23 of 39 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown for Massachusetts (1-9, 1-5 Mid-American Conference), whose special teams also produced a blocked punt, three field goals by Blake Lucas and three consecutive fourth-quarter punts downed inside the 5-yard line.

The interceptions by Khary Bailey-Smith, Randall Jette, Ed Saint-Vil and Joe Colton helped the Minutemen overcome 332 passing yards by Akron's Dalton Williams, who completed 34 of 51. Massachusetts' final three scoring drives went a combined total of 28 yards.

Jawon Chisholm added 103 yards on 23 carries with a touchdown for the Zips (1-10, 0-7).

Akron got within 22-14 on Williams' 19-yard scoring pass to Marquelo Suel, but Williams' fumble after being sacked by Ryan Delaire stopped the Zips' final chance.
