Miami (Ohio) at UMass | 3:30 p.m.

Winless UMass still hunting for a victory

A strong start and an even better finish. That’s what the University of Massachusetts football team is looking for on Saturday afternoon when the Minutemen host Miami University at Gillette Stadium.

UMass is 0-5 and second halves have been costly. The Minutemen have scored just 34 points (an average of 6.8) and have allowed 158 (31.6 average). The third quarter has been the most challenging, with opponents outscoring UMass, 56-0.
