Miami (Ohio) has plenty of advantages in this matchup. The RedHawks are playing at home, and they are top two in the MAC in terms of scoring offense (29.8 points per game) and scoring defense (19 points per game allowed).
Even without Day 1 starting quarterback Brett Gabbert, Aveon Smith has stepped up to the challenge for Miami. I expect him to have a great performance at home.
