Miami of Ohio is still looking for their first win of the season.
This week does not look like the spot to get it for a program that might be the worst in the MAC this season. In their five games, the only opponent they have played within less than a touchdown was FCS Eastern Illinois.
They have covered in three games though.
The MAC East is definitely up for grabs and Akron may be the best team in the division.
They have a great chance to push their conference record to 2-0 this weekend. They have been terrible on defense though, whcih makes them tough to back, even when they are a home favourite.
They have covered just once this season.
Miami (Ohio) Redhawks
The Redhawks have performed as expected this season.
If you are a Phil Steele guy you would have seen that all of their units are below average (for the MAC) as their just is not much to work with for coach Chuck Martin.
They are winless and if they don’t get a win next week hosting Kent State it could be a doughnut for the program. It wouldn’t be a shock but it probably means they are looking for new leadership.
The only thing working for this club right now is a pass offense ranked in the Top 50.
Unfortunately Billy Bahl has a shoulder injury and will not be available on Saturday. Noah Wezensky is the backup and the freshman saw his first and only action of the season last week.
Odds are they challenge him. The line is going to be important because he does not have the same kind of bulk and presence as Bahl.
Akron has a big game next week as they host Western Michigan. They could be caught looking ahead a little but even so should not have too much trouble with Miami.
The program is heading in the right direction but this year has been a little different with the offense leading the way.
They have scored 31 or more points in three straight games, including a whopping 65 in a win at Marshall a few weeks back. It was the one game they covered.
Thomas Woodson has put up some monster games already this season but missed last week with an injury. At the moment it is unclear whether he will play in this one or not.
Tra’Von Chapman, who started his career at Pitt, did not have a good game last week filling in.
Right now he is more athlete than signal caller but if pressed into duty he could be better. The passing game is what fuels this offense.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Prediction
Miami is no good but it makes me nervous backing a home favourite with a quarterback that is not familiar with what is really going on.
Chapman threw two picks against Kent State last night which contributed to the no cover.

The Zips have been giving up a lot of points this season and they even though Miami isn’t good their defense isn’t going to suddenly get SEC good. Even if Chapman is not precise the Zips will be able to move the ball with ease.
