What to Know

Miami (Ohio) lost both of their matches to Western Michigan last season, on scores of 35-13 and 40-39, so they're hoping to turn the tables this season. Miami (Ohio)'s bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Western Michigan at noon ET at Waldo Stadium on Saturday. The RedHawks are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 37.2 goals per matchup.

The RedHawks were able to grind out a solid victory over Buffalo two weeks ago, winning 34-20. Among those leading the charge for Miami (Ohio) was RB Jaylon Bester, who rushed for 107 yards and one TD on 24 carries.

We saw a pretty high 73.5-point over/under line set for Western Michigan's previous contest, but the actual score was more down to earth. They took a 31-24 hit to the loss column at the hands of Toledo. The Broncos haven't found any success against Toledo since Nov. 25 of 2016, this loss making it three in a row.

Miami (Ohio)'s win lifted them to 2-3 while Western Michigan's defeat dropped them down to 3-3. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Broncos enter the game with 28 overall touchdowns, good for 14th best in the nation. Less enviably, Miami (Ohio) are stumbling into the game with the fewest yards per game in the nation, having accrued only 239.2 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the RedHawks.
