Ball State (10-2, 7-1 MAC) rolled up 585 total yards of offense and had three receivers catch touchdown passes and eclipse 100 yards receiving. Jamill Smith caught seven balls for 127 yards and three TDs, Jordan Williams made five catches for 161 yards and a pair of scores and Willie Snead hauled in 11 passes for 133 yards and one TD.
The Cardinals raced out to a 35-0 halftime lead, including Wenning's 72-yard pass-and-run to Williams, before Miami (0-12, 0-8) finally got on the board in the third on Drew Kummer's 58-yard scoring strike to Dawan Scott.
The RedHawks got a 3-yard scoring plunge from Austin Gearing to cut the lead to 38-14, but Ball State tacked on two more TDs and a field goal in the rout.
