AKRON, Ohio. (AP) - Akron coach Terry Bowden has received a two-year contract extension that runs through 2018.

The Zips are 4-7 in Bowden's second season after three straight 1-11 finishes. Akron hasn't won as many as four games since 2008. The Zips are also 3-4 in the Mid-American Conference.

Akron takes a two-game winning streak into its season finale against Toledo next week.

Bowden coached at Auburn from 1993-98 and spent three seasons at North Alabama before coming to Akron last season.
