Football brief: ’hawks travel to Umass for final season game

The Miami University football team (2-9, 1-6 Mid-American Conference) travels to University of Massachusetts (2-8, 1-5 MAC) for its last regular season game Saturday.

UMass and Miami combined for 83 points during their last meeting on Oct. 4, 2014, when the RedHawks claimed a come-from-behind 42-41 victory at Yager Stadium. MU had trailed 42-21 at halftime. The win broke Miami's 21-game losing streak.

Sophomore wide receiver Sam Martin, who had eight receptions for 111 yards and four TDs in that game, will sit out this Saturday after suffering a lower body injury last weekend against Akron University.

Redshirt freshman Gus Ragland, who has the team's second-most rushing yards (348 yards, 57 attempts), will also sit out with a lower body injury.
