Miami (OH) Vs. Cincinnati 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Coming off impressive wins, both the Red Hawks and Bearcats are looking to improve their resumes on Saturday.

Last week the Miami (OH) offense looked near-unstoppable against Akron, while the defense of Cincinnati remains one of the best in the country, allowing just 13.7 points per game. Both teams will rely on their strengths to prevail as the teams meet on Saturday.

Against the Zips, QB Zac Dysert broke out for the Red Hawks, as the senior QB threw for 516 yards, and six touchdowns on way to a 56-49 victory. It's the lack of defense (ranked 106th in the nation in points allowed) that will be Miami's Achilles heel in facing a top-50 offense in Cincinnati that excels at both running the ball and passing. Dysert and his teammates will need to make this game a shootout, and that is easier said than done.

Cincinnati QB Munchie Legaux struggled last week against Virginia Tech, as he completed less than 50 percent of his passes, and yet it was still enough to propel the Bearcats to victory. Legaux excels at spreading the ball around and, when paired with one of the best rushers in the nation, George Winn, it makes facing the Bearcats a difficult task.
