The Miami University football team has finalized their 2012 schedule and will play the Southern Illinois University Salukis at Yager Stadium Saturday, Sept. 8th, rounding out their four-team non-conference schedule.
Miami, who was set to play the University of Missouri on Sept. 22, was left with a scheduling gap following Missouri's switch from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The SEC scheduled the Tigers to play the University of South Carolina on Sept. 22, forcing the RedHawks to find a fourth non-conference opponent.
The Salukis, who compete in the Missouri Valley Conference, are a member of Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), formerly Division II, and compiled a 4-7 (2-6 Missouri Valley) record in 2011.
Miami finished the 2011 season with a 4-8 record and a 3-5 mark in the Mid-American Conference.
