The NCAA has seen some monumental shifts this year, forever changing the future of college athletics.
For the first few weeks, most Mid-American Conference (MAC) teams have faced a tough schedule loaded with Power Five teams. After battling it out in non-conference contests, conference play returns with a full slate of MAC games, including Miami’s conference home opener against Central Michigan.
Chris Bergeron enters his third year at the helm of the Miami RedHawks still looking for his first winning season. It hasn’t been an easy task for Bergeron, taking over a team that finished seventh or lower (of eight) in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) in the the three seasons preceding his hire. The RedHawks hit the ice for the first time on October 2 against Ferris State in Big Rapids, Michigan. After another weekend series at Michigan State, Miami finally returns to Cady Arena for its home opener against cross-state rival Bowling Green on October 22.
The Victory Bell is the oldest current non-conference rivalry in the country, having first been played in 1888, and is scheduled to run through 2029. If Cincinnati keeps up its current win streak until then, it might be time to retire this game as a yearly event.
The Miami University RedHawks football team will attempt to get in the win column for the first time this season against Long Island University. The teams match up at 3:30 p.m. this Saturday, September 18, in Oxford at Yager Stadium.

Miami wide receivers coach Israel Woolfork played college football from 2008 to 2012 at Division II Grand Valley State in Michigan, where Chuck Martin was the head coach before moving on to Notre Dame as an assistant. Before YouTube was around, he remembers mailing out DVDs and VHS tapes of his highlights when he was in high school. “Now, to see where it is, where a kid can literally inbox me with his link to his highlights, his transcripts, and everything being on the phone and accessible in a matter of 30 seconds? It’s wild.”
RedHawks men’s basketball head coach Jack Owens’ contract has been extended through the 2023-2024 season as announced by the program Thursday. A copy of Owens’ extension obtained by The Miami Student shows the contract was signed on May 4, 2021 and expires on May 31, 2024.
