Akron, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Jawon Chisholm rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns as the Akron Zips upended the Miami-Ohio RedHawks, 29-19, in a Mid- American Conference conflict at InfoCision Stadium.

For Akron (4-2, 2-0 MAC), Kyle Pohl threw for 103 yards on 13-of-22 passing before giving way to Tommy Woodson due to an injury sustained in the first half. Woodson completed 7-of-14 pass attempts for 64 yards. Imani Davis had 53 yards on a team-best of six receptions.

A 10-yard touchdown run from Chisholm kept the Zips on the attack offensively.

Hendrix threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Frazier midway through the second quarter to keep the RedHawks within striking distance. However, Kaleb Patterson's extra point attempt was off the mark.
