OXFORD, Ohio -- With the beginning of Mid-American Conference play Wednesday, the Miami basketball season will be getting more intense. And with that intensity, the Flex Pack has taken on added importance.

The three-game plan, where fans can choose which opponents they want to see, is now down to eight MAC schools, including rivals Ohio on Jan. 23, Akron on Feb. 9 and Kent State on March 2.

And if the date of one of those won't work, you still can choose from Bowling Green, Buffalo and three West Division foes to make our Flex Pack your personal ticket to the games you want.

Pick any three games for the low price of $48.

Two other special opportunities are on the upcoming calendar. The Firecrackers, an annual fan favorite, will showcase their jump-roping skills at the Bowling Green game on Jan. 16, while the second of three McFamily and Friends Days takes place on Jan. 26 when the RedHawks host Ball State. For that contest, fans can get four game tickets and four McDonald's extra-value meal coupons for just $44, but must order in advance.

To order your tickets, call the athletic ticket office at (513) 529-4295 or visit MURedHawks.com.
