Game Day-- Miami (Ohio)

All right. Today we start MAC games. Up until this time, we have been a mostly FCS team playing a BCS schedule.

Moving to league play means the talent level won't be as overwhelming. However, the MAC is still several steps ahead of where we are right now. Kent State beat Towson (picked by many to compete for the CAA title) 41-21. Miami (Ohio) should be a couple of TD favorite, but let's get the running game working and cut down on the penalties.

I would like to see some positive stuff happen to reward the players and coaches who have worked hard this year.

Go UMass!!!

UMass looks a much better physical match with Miami (Ohio).

A missed FG and a blown defensive assignment or it would have been 7-6 Miami at the half.

Total yards at the half 240 UMass 225 for Miami.

That was an awful call on the 5 yard line.

Run Cox four times!

Cox scores in one play from 6...

Looking much better, we let one slip away.
