Miami Ohio Redhawks

The Redhawks have knocked off Bowling Green, Akron and Kent State in conference play, with their only loss coming to Western Michigan in a 40-39 shootout that came down to the wire. And when you look at common opponents, the Redhawks lost to Army by just one point, while Buffalo dropped their matchup to the Knights by 29…Miami's top-five MAC defense has a great chance to keep Buffalo in check enough to make this game at least competitive. Veteran quarterback Gus Ragland has also limited mistakes this season (14 touchdowns, 3 interceptions), further helping Miami's chances on Tuesday evening.

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo coach Lance Leipold, in the Buffalo News, on adjusting to mid-week games: “As a head coach, I made some mistakes my first year because we’d developed some injuries and tried to get guys ready, but at the same time, other guys were wearing down.We had some injuries on the offensive line and were practicing probably longer than we needed to. That probably hurt us later that year. Those are things you have to balance and know where your team is completely at. There was a learning curve there, and I think we have a better balance now, as a staff and as a program.”
