The Miami RedHawks college football team compete as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, representing the Miami University in the Eastern Division of the Mid-American Conference (MAC). Miami has played their home games at Yager Stadium in Oxford, Ohio since 1983.[1]

Miami has 22 conference championships with 11 postseason bowl game appearances and 7 bowl game victories.[2] The RedHawks have also had 13 undefeated seasons, a longest winning streak of 14 games between 2003 and 2004 and a home winning streak of 14 games between 1973 and 1975, and also between 1980 and 1982.[3]

Football was introduced to the university in 1888. The first win in the history of the program came the following year, a 44–0 shutout over Dayton High School on November 9, 1889.[2] From 1888 to 1910, Miami competed as a football independent, before they joined the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) in 1911. From 1911 to 1927, Miami saw some success as they had only three losing seasons and four conference championships. In 1928, Miami left the OAC and became a charter member of the Buckeye Conference.[2] As a member of the Buckeye Conference, Miami won conference championships in 1932, 1933, and 1936.[2] In 1939 the conference dissolved and Miami competed independently again.

By 1948 Miami joined the MAC, where it remains today. Miami won the first MAC title in its inaugural year.[2] Miami leads the MAC with 15 conference titles.

  3. The Associated Press began conducting a weekly college football poll in 1936.[4]
  4. The college football coaches' poll has been sponsored by multiple organizations since its creation in 1950. Its current sponsor is USA Today[4]
  5. Miami claims a conference title for 1918, but the OAC lists Wittenburg as the conference campion.
  6. The OAC lists Miami as finishing 2nd for the 1918 season
  7. Miami finished the 1994 season with an overall record of 5–5–1, but the NCAA later awarded a forfeit win over Michigan State University for using an ineligible player.[2]
