OXFORD, Ohio -- The Miami tennis team looks to continue its winning ways this weekend with a second straight Mid-American Conference road trip. The RedHawks face Toledo on Friday and Eastern Michigan Saturday to wrap up four straight matches on the road.

Miami (7-9, 2-0) opened the conference season last weekend by upsetting 65th-ranked Akron 4-3, and topping Buffalo 6-1. The wins extended the RedHawks' streak to 27 straight regular-season victories in MAC play.

The Rockets (7-7, 0-1 MAC) are looking to get back in the win column after being edged 4-3 by Eastern Michigan in last week's conference-opening contest. The loss snapped Toledo's five-match win streak. The match will start at 1 p.m. at the UT Varsity Tennis Courts or at 11:30 a.m. if weather forces it inside to the Shadow Valley Tennis Club in Maumee.

Eastern Michigan stands 5-11 overall and 1-0 in league play. Following their win over Toledo, the Eagles fell 6-1 at Louisville on Sunday.
