Chuck Martin's second season at the helm of the Miami RedHawks kicks off in Oxford this weekend against the Presbyterian Blue Hose as the 'Hawks take on a FCS program for the second consecutive year. Miami lost to Eastern Kentucky 17-10 in 2014 on their way to a 2-10 record and hope to make a push up the MAC East standings this season.
The older defense of the RedHawks will have to defend an option attack again in 2015 while fans finally get to see the new-look offense for this season. All games are must-win games, but these are the games that the Red and White have to win if they want to get back on top in the East.

Players to Watch
Rokeem Williams (WR, Miami)- The second leading pass catcher for the RedHawks a season ago with 35 catches for 682 yards and three touchdowns, Williams looks to be the go-to guy for newly minted starting QB Drew Kummer.
Bryson Albright (DE, Miami)- One of the MAC's leading sack artists with six total sacks in 2014, Albright leads an experienced defensive line for Miami with JT Jones at the opposite end and Mitch Winters on the inside.
Heath Harding (CB, Miami)- Harding, a playmaker in the secondary with two picks and 98 total tackles at safety last season, returns back to his natural position at corner where he had three interceptions in 2013.
Ed Britt (DB, Presbyterian)- A lone bright spot for a defense that allowed nearly 25 points per game in 2014, Britt registered three interceptions, a pick-six, a fumble return for a touchdown, and 72 total tackles.
