Tuesday night marks two significant events. First, it’s Halloween! So I hope you have worked enough on your Scary Frank Solich or Jinks-enstein MAC-themed costume. It also marks the start of our almost exclusively weeknight football schedule, with the Miami-Ohio Redhawks and the Ohio University Bobcats getting going with the 94th Battle of the Bricks when Miami travels to in-state rival Ohio’s Peden Stadium in Athens at 8PM.
And this one is meaningful for a whole host of reasons beyond winning a game over your rival. The contest is crucial for both schools in the MAC East race. A Miami win would move the RedHawks to 3-2 in the MAC with the tie breaker over the Bobcats and a contest with Akron (currently 3-1 in the MAC) the following week. For Ohio, currently 6-2 (3-1 MAC) they are still in control of their own destiny for the MAC East and a win Tuesday is crucial to maintaining that.
