Road Trippin'

The Game:  Toledo at Miami (OH)

The Mileage:  198 (Approximately a 3.5 hour drive)

The Reasons:  Robert Frost described Miami University as "the most beautiful college there ever was," so that should be reason enough.  Also, Toledo head coach Tim Beckman wants you to make the trip.  Both teams defenses are serving up more that 34 points per game, so there should be a lot of scoring.  The Miami RedHawks hold a 28-20-1 edge over the Toledo Rockets in the all-time series. 

Lodging:  It's only a 3.5 hour drive, so you can drive back after the game.

Eats:  Bagel & Deli Shop is located less than a block from campus.  Founded in 1975, Bagel & Deli shop is known for steamed bagel sandwiches and subs.  It boasts more than 90 speciality sandwiches and has spawned four other branches across the nation.

Another Miami legend is the Tuffy's Toasted Roll. The Toasted Roll was created by Myron Timothy Potter (nicknamed Tuffy), who enrolled in Miami in 1921 and never left.  You can get one at the Tuffy's in the Shriver Center located in the middle of campus.



Tickets:  You should have no problem getting tickets last minute.  Call the ticket office at (513) 529-HAWK to make sure.

Tips:  Don't step on the seal.  The University Seal is embedded into the sidewalk in the center of campus.  The tradition is to avoid stepping on the seal, out of respect for the history and values of Miami University.
