Why Miami University Will Win
The defending MAC champs continue to be one of those Find A Way teams, but now it has more of an offense to help the cause.
AJ Mayer has taken over the quarterbacking gig, and he pitched a gem in the 38-31 win over Ball State, leading the way to 28 second half points in the late rally. He finished with 212 yards and three touchdowns, the running game did just enough to get by, and again, there was actually a Miami offense to worry about after so many struggling performances last year.

That didn’t matter much in last year’s 34-20 loss to the RedHawks.
Miami has been a thorn in UB’s side in three of the last four seasons, but this year it’s in Amherst, and now there’s a real revenge factor in play.
Miami will seem like it has the ball for three hours, because it probably will – more like around 35 minutes – but that’s also because Buffalo will be just that explosive. Both teams will turn it loose into the backfield, but the Bulls will do a little more, and they’ll have a running game, the RedHawks won’t.
