Ohio State draws with No. 1-ranked Akron, 2-2

Akron, the top-ranked men's team in Division I college soccer, yielded an equalizer with a few seconds remaining in regulation and settled for a 2-2 draw with No. 19 Ohio State in front of more than 7,000 in Columbus.

"In some ways, when you haven't tasted anything but wins, when things have maybe come easy, you feel like you are invincible," Zips Coach Caleb Porter said. "Certainly in this sport, no one is invincible. Maybe we needed to feel a little bit vulnerable because we were vulnerable today. In the long run, this is going to help us."

Ditto. Akron-OSU can outdraw some matches in the Scottish PL.

The kid who got the assist on the first OSU goal is from the DCU academy.

I've seen worse highlight videos from La Liga -- that was actually good quality video.

Somehow, Akron will survive their unbeaten record.

Note that OSU still has a Warzycha in its ranks.
