YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Gus Ragland had a 54-yard touchdown throw to Jared Murphy and ran in another score Saturday to lead Miami (Ohio) to a 28-15 win over Eastern Michigan.
Ragland finished 15 of 23 for 175 yards and punched in his rushing TD from the 2 on the game’s opening drive. Kenny Young made it 14-0 on the RedHawks next possession with a 54-yard touchdown run as Miami (3-6, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) notched its third-straight win.
Also scoring for the RedHawks was Alonzo Smith with a 1-yard touchdown.
In the fourth quarter, Eastern Michigan (5-4, 2-3) closed the gap to 28-15 with a 75-yard TD pass from Brogan Roback to Dieuly Aristilde, but the Eagles next drive stalled at the Ohio 41 and an interception by Heath Harding ended their final possession at midfield.
Roback finished with 328 yards and two touchdowns, while Aristilde had a career-high 193 yards receiving.
