Austin Boucher's touchdown pass gave Miami (Ohio) a quick lead in the first quarter before the Redhawks fell behind in the second by giving up two touchdowns. Boucher was 10-for-22 for 165 yards. Miami (Ohio) managed to tie the game at 14 with two minutes left before the half, but were unable to score the rest of the night.
