Kent State vs Miami University Game Preview
Why Miami University Will Win
It’s not as easy as stopping Kent State by stopping the run, but Miami University has the ability to hold its own for long stretches.
The RedHawks lead the MAC in run defense, the pass rush is good enough to get into the backfield and slow things down before they get started, and just as importantly, they have a passing game that can potentially keep up.

What’s Going To Happen
It’s one game to see who plays Northern Illinois for the MAC Championship next week.
Miami will try to balance things out, but it doesn’t control the clock enough to grind out long drives. What it can do is bomb away deep and hit the big plays to make this a back-and-forth fight.
Who’s going to blink first? Kent State leads then nation in turnovers margin. Miami doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, but it’ll give up the one key play to be enough in a fabulous game.
