With Akron (2-4, 2-1 Mid-American Conference) behind 14-7 early in the second quarter, Domenik Hixon returned a kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown.

Biggs scored on a 26-yard run on the next possession and Akron didn't trail again. Biggs reached the end zone again on 1-yard run for a 28-14 halftime lead and added a 14-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.

The Bulls (1-5, 1-3) pulled within 28-21 on Jared Patterson's 2-yard T-D with 12:40 left in the third quarter. But Frye later led Akron on a 67-yard drive that ended with a 12-yard TD pass to Jason Montgomery.
