Although Akron lost to FCS opponent Gardner -Webb, they did have two 100-yard rushers.  Alex Allen ran the ball 20 times for 110 yards and three touchdowns while Nate Burney had 17 carries for 119 yards.

Akron running back Alex Allen has been granted a sixth year of eligibility.  Allen sat out the 2006 season with a knee injury and missed most of 2008 with a hip injury.

After rushing for seven touchdowns in 2007, many thought Allen was on the way to becoming a solid perfomer.  But injuries have limited Allen's potential.

After suffering a season ending hip injury last year, running back Alex Allen is back on the practice field for Akron. 

If Allen's hip is 100% he could be a surprise 1000-yard back in 2009.   He's worth a late round flier pick.

Alex Allen is looking to replace Dennis Kennedy and emerge as the Zips' starting tailback in 2009.

Allen showed flashes last season, rushing for 103 yards and two scores in week two against Syracuse before a week three hip injury ended his season. He'll have to fend off Louisville transfer Dale Martin for the starting job.

Akron running back Alex Allen is out for the year with a hip injury suffered against Ball State in week three.

Allen had a nice start to the 2008 season before going down. Look for Dennis Kennedy to carry the load the rest of the way for the Zips.
