Brett Gabert threw four touchdown passes, fired a 58-yard scoring pass to Jack Sorenson in the Redhawks’ first offensive game, and Miami (OH) scored a 45-18 win over Buffalo on Tuesday night.
Miami returned from a 35–33 upset loss to Ohio, coming into the game with just one win in eight games.
Gabert completed 21 of 28 passes for 351 yards and did not throw a turnover. Sorenson, who set a school record with 283 yards on 14 catches, took five more catches for 112 yards.
The Redhawks (5-5, 4-2 Mid-America) forced a Buffalo fumble on their first offensive series and Gabert had no way of getting the Redhawks into the end zone with a flea flick to a wide-open Sorenson. Didn’t waste time. Gabert hit Mack Hippenhammer from a 14-yard distance to start the second quarter, then got Andrew Homer and Jalen Walker for touchdowns in the third quarter.
Kyon Mozzy did it 15 times for 67 yards and a touchdown, and Kenny Tracy added five for 476 yards and a score.
He was 11 of 20 for 151 yards for the Bulls (4-6, 2-4), but threw an interception and was forced into a fumble after a two-yard run in Buffalo’s first series. Dylan McDuffy ran 20 times for 91 yards.
