With its stunning win over rival and previously undefeated Ohio University Saturday, the RedHawks are not only back in the MAC title hunt but are also very likely to go to a bowl game this season.
Miami (4-4 overall, 3-1 MAC) still has to win two more games to become bowl eligible. The RedHawks travel to play Buffalo (1-7, 0-4 MAC) Saturday, Nov. 3, before returning home to play Kent State (7-1, 4-0 MAC) Saturday, Nov. 10. MU rounds out its regular season schedule playing at Central Michigan (3-5, 1-3 MAC) Saturday, Nov. 17 and at home against Ball State (6-3, 3-2 MAC) the day after Thanksgiving Friday, Nov. 23.
