Miami (OH) RedHawks (7-5)


Miami, Ohio holds off CMU 26-21 in MAC title game

DETROIT (AP) As long as Miami of Ohio kept the game close, coach Chuck Martin could feel reasonably confident.

"I told the kids at halftime, down 14-10, I said, `It feels kind of at home guys,'" Martin said. "`Kind of a little bit ugly, make a couple plays here and there. They probably feel like they should be up by more, but they're not up by more.'"

Brett Gabbert threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Jack Sorenson early in the third quarter, and Miami controlled most of the second half, beating Central Michigan 26-21 in the Mid-American Conference title game Saturday. The RedHawks won a record 16th MAC championship despite doing little on offense in the first half.
