In a tale of two halves, an 11-point halftime lead wasn’t enough for Miami — Kent State University came roaring back to beat Miami football 17-14. Despite out-gaining the host’s 335-328 yards, and holding a 19-12 first down advantage, the RedHawks lost for the third straight week. Miami went into their date with Notre Dame with a 2-2 record and there was optimism about the future. Yet, all that’s followed is disappointment coming in the form of a trio of losses — two on the road, one at home. If there’s any team in the nation that can overcome...Read More
In a shootout that saw both sides combine for 1,117 total yards, Miami football found itself on the losing end for the second consecutive week in a heartbreaking 37-29 defeat to Bowling Green State University. Saturday’s Mid-American Conference East Division affair shuffled the league standings. Miami (2-4, 1-1 MAC) moved from second to third place, as the head-to-head tiebreaker allowed BGSU (1-5, 1-1 MAC) to usurp the ‘Hawks. Akron (3-3, 2-0) tightens its grip on the top spot, still in first after week two of MACtion. Two themes prevalent within the game were lead changes and a slim point...Read More

Marking the beginning of Mid-American Conference play, Miami football (2-2, 1-0 MAC) defeated Central Michigan University (2-2, 0-1 MAC) 31-14 on the road. Gus Ragland had three touchdowns on Saturday afternoon. The Redshirt junior quarterback set the tempo from the opening kickoff. His six yard scoring run and three-yard touchdown pass to Redshirt sophomore tight end Quentin Hardy saw MU take a 14-0 advantage after the first quarter. CMU wouldn’t go down without a fight, though. With 10:39 left in the second quarter, senior quarterback Shane Morris answered the call with a two-yard rushing touchdown to cut the deficit to 14-7. This would be the closest the Chippewas would get, thanks to a quick response from Ragland and the ’Hawks. Not even 1:30 after Morris’ rumble into the end zone, senior wide receiver Sam Martin was on the receiving-end of a 50-yard scoring connection — putting the RedHawks up 21-7. On the day, Martin caught two passes for 72 yards. Seven minutes later, a 31-yard end zone burst from Redshirt junior running back Kenny Young saw the Red and White extend their lead to 28-7. Notably, Young dealt with a death in the family prior to kickoff. “Kenny Young losing a relative, basically a brother, 24 hours before [University of] Cincinnati, plays his tail off at Cincinnati,” Miami head coach Chuck Martin said. “Goes home the last two days...Read More
For the past 11 seasons, the famed Victory Bell has been in the possession of the University of Cincinnati (1-1). This Saturday, at home, Miami football (1-1) will get the opportunity to end Cincinnati’s reign.

In the series, the RedHawks hold a slight 59-55 advantage. Last season, in a matchup that has been tightly contested since 2013, the ‘Hawks fell short away from Yager Stadium by a score of 27-20. MU...Read More
Miami football (0-0) — who is coming into the year after a six-game regular season winning-streak — is seeking a good start to the 2017 campaign as it makes the southern trek to face Marshall University (0-0) on the road. Following a nine-month hiatus, the ‘Hawks will again be playing meaningful football. With this, a sense of certainty and excitement floods Oxford — the regular season is back. The RedHawks look to take their first step toward Mid-American Conference glory. Opening against the Green and White won’t be easy, however. “They’re really athletic, at every position,” head coach Chuck...Read More
