Miami continues Mid-American Conference play with a 2-1 league record, trailing Kent State (4-0) and Ohio (3-0) in the MAC's East Division. With wins in their last five regular-season games, the RedHawks would advance to the MAC title game.
The RedHawks are 2-0 at home this season. With a victory over highly-ranked Ohio on Saturday, Miami would improve its all-time Yager Stadium record to 86-54-4. The RedHawks enter the game with an all-time record of 8-5-1 vs. Ohio at Yager.
On the NCAA's exclusive 10,000-yard club, Miami quarterback Zac Dysert currently is in 61st place with 10,444 career passing yards. A 17th career 300-yard-plus passing effort could move Dysert past Boston College's Doug Flutie (10,579), Southern California Matt Leinart (10,693) and Marshall's Chad Pennington (10,698).
For the sixth consecutive game, RedHawk linebacker Chris Wade recorded at least 11 tackles. His season total of 75 stops is fourth-best among MAC players.
Miami (3-4 overall, 2-1 MAC) still controls its own destiny in its quest for the 2012 MAC East title. The RedHawks host both Ohio (3-0 MAC) and Kent State (4-0 MAC) and would hold the final advantage with wins in its last five MAC games. Three of those five MAC games are at home, while its two MAC road games are at Buffalo (1-6) and at Central Michigan (2-5).
Miami has been more offensively successful in its first seven games of 2012 than through a similar span in 2011. The RedHawks are averaging 375 total yards per game this season as compared to 332 total yards last year. Miami is averaging 23 points per game so far in 2012, compared to a 17.7 ppg in 2011.
