Southern Illinois at Miami (Ohio)

Miami (Ohio) 30, S. Illinois 14


OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - Zac Dysert passed for 226 yards and a touchdown and two Pat Hinkel interceptions led to Miami (Ohio) scores as the RedHawks defeated Southern Illinois 30-14 Saturday.

Dysert, who completed 28 of 36 with no interceptions, started the scoring for Miami (1-1) with his 50th career touchdown pass, a 10-yarder to Andy Cruse in the first quarter. Cruse caught a career-high 12 passes for 60 yards.

The Salukis (0-2) answered by driving 71 yards in 10 plays, scoring on Mika'il McCall's 1-yard run. But on their next possession, Hinkel intercepted Kory Faulkner's pass at the SIU 24 and returned it for a touchdown and a 14-7 Miami lead.

After the RedHawks added a third-quarter field goal, Hinkel intercepted Faulkner again to put Miami at the SIU 27. A defensive holding penalty moved the ball to the 12 and Jamire Westbrook ran it in to make it 24-7 after three quarters.
