MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- Brandon Murphy scored on a 6-yard touchdown run with 17 seconds left in the game as Miami of Ohio defeated Ball State 14-13 Thursday night.
Murphy rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns for the RedHawks in the opening game for both Mid-American Conference teams.
Murphy's final touchdown was set up by Eugene Harris' 56-yard punt return that gave Miami the ball on the Ball State 23 yard line with 1:54 left. The RedHawks scored on a five-play drive -- four rushes by Murphy and an incomplete pass.
Jake Hogue kicked field goals of 20 yards and 22 yards for the Cardinals after drives stalled deep in Miami territory.
