People who believe there are no coincidences need look no further than Miami’s 2019-20 schedule to have that theory disproven.
The RedHawks’ slate for next season was recently released, and they open against Bowling Green at Cady Arena on Oct. 6.
Coach Chris Bergeron left BGSU for Miami two weeks ago after nine years at the helm of that program.
The teams will play a home-and-home series, with Miami reciprocating on Dec. 30.
The RedHawks’ other non-conference opponents are Ferris State, New Hampshire, Colgate and Connecticut. The former two will play their series in Oxford, and Miami will travel to Colgate and UConn.
Miami opens NCHC play at North Dakota on Nov. 7-8. Minnesota-Duluth comes to Oxford the following weekend for the RedHawks’ first home league series of the season.
It’s not a particularly difficult non-conference schedule for the RedHawks. Bowling Green is the only foe among that group to make the NCAA Tournament this season, and Ferris State and Colgate finished 2018-19 in the bottom 10 of the PairWise.
Connecticut was No. 45 and New Hampshire ended the season 33rd. Miami tied for 37th.
