After a 23-3 route of Temple University Nov. 23 at Yager Stadium, Miami University players and coaches gathered in the locker room for a post-game celebration. Head Coach Michael Haywood spoke to the players, commending them on their outstanding performance during the game and throughout the entire season. Also watch a powerful version of the Miami fight song.
The RedHawks secured a share of the MAC East Division title with this win, and while the team has overcome much adversity, it no longer controls its fate. If Kent State University wins over Ohio University Nov. 26, Miami will face Northern Illinois University in the MAC championship game in Detroit, Mich.
"As we continue to move forward, remember how this foundation was built," Haywood said after the game. "How the senior class has provided great leadership -- unbelievable leadership and guidance -- by the way that they've changed their ways, to change the culture, to help Miami football become a winning tradition again."
Miami finished last year with a 1-11 record and ended this season 8-4, becoming the most improved team in the country.
