After picking up the win against Presbyterian, the RedHawks head to Camp Randall this weekend for a road test against Wisconsin. The Badgers are coming off of a 35-17 loss to #2 Alabama where they could only muster 40 yards on the ground. The offense for the Red and White may have some opportunities to hang around and be competitive as the run defense of the Badgers allowed 238 yards against the Crimson Tide.

Players to Watch
Alonzo Smith (RB, Miami): Leading the charge for a more balanced RedHawk attack, Smith made some hay in his first action as a college football player with 86 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Fellow freshmen Kenny Young and Leonard Ross also had success on the ground as the team rushed for 205 yards.
Drew Kummer (QB, Miami): Kummer was effective at managing the game in his first start last week, hitting eight different receivers as he went 14/19 for 255 yards and two scores while adding 35 yards on the ground. He was able to hit big plays in the passing game last week as well with six completions of 15 yards or more, including a 52-yard touchdown to Rokeem Williams.
Tony Reid (S, Miami): The safety for the 'Hawks was able to make some opportunistic plays against the Blue Hose with a red zone interception and a forced fumble to save a touchdown (immediately following a blown coverage by Reid). Despite committing penalties on defense and special teams, his ability is an asset for Miami and his growth between the ears as a football player will make him invaluable for the team moving forward.
Joel Stave (QB, Wisconsin): Against a very talented and well-coached Alabama defense, Stave had success through the air to the tune of 228 yards and two touchdowns. It'll be an interesting match-up to see him go against a Miami defense that allowed 163 passing yards and no scores through the air against Presbyterian.
