UMass 22, Akron 14

UMass football earns first win by beating Akron

AKRON, Ohio — Four interceptions, superb special teams play, and a final defensive stand lifted the University of Massachusetts to its first win of the 2012 season on Saturday, a 22-14 victory over Akron at InfoCision Stadium.

With 1:30 left in the game and Akron facing a fourth-and-2 at its 49-yard line, Ryan Delaire sacked Zips quarterback Dalton Williams, ending the game and earning first-year coach Charley Molnar a Gatorade bath.
