The Miami RedHawks were 37-point favorites against Tennessee Tech before kickoff on Saturday.
They covered that betting line in the first half before falling slightly under it in the second. Still, Miami gave the Golden Eagles a predictable 48-17 whipping at Yager Stadium.
“We were better than these guys,” Miami head coach Chuck Martin said. “We did what we should’ve done today, but that’s why you play. You don’t always do it, but our kids came and handled business.”
After a defensive slugfest of a first half against Iowa last week, Miami exploded for 41 points before Saturday’s intermission.
