RedHawks score 17 points off turnovers

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- Josh Betts threw for 295 yards, and Miami of Ohio's defense forced four turnovers Tuesday night that helped set up a 23-16 victory over Toledo.

Miami (6-3, 5-1 Mid-American Conference) scored 17 points off Toledo's turnovers, then turned to its defense in the fourth quarter. Toledo (6-3, 5-1) reached the Miami 20-yard line in the closing minutes, but consecutive sacks of Bruce Gradkowski clinched the win.

Toledo's final turnover, a fumble by Trinity Dawson, set up Miami's go-ahead touchdown. Betts threw a 26-yard pass to Ryne Robinson, and Luke Clemens ran the final yard for a 23-16 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Clemens gained 94 yards on 24 carries, and scored both Miami touchdowns. Robinson had nine catches for 146 yards.

Quinton Broussard's fumble at the Toledo 32-yard line set up Miami's second field goal for a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. Gradkowski's 2-yard sneak tied it later in the quarter, but the extra-point kick was blocked.

Flanker Lance Moore caught a screen pass and ran 36 yards to put Toledo ahead 13-6 in the second quarter, but Miami tied it on Clemens' 7-yard run, set up by another Toledo fumble.

The teams traded field goals in the third quarter.
