Jalen Walker caught two passes for 60 yards. Dominique Robinson had 60 yards on three receptions.
Bart Baratti returned an interception 35 yards for a score.
Miami didn’t score in the third quarter in part because Tennessee Tech ran 10 minutes, 35 seconds off the clock on a 20-play, 72-yard drive before being stopped four times at the Miami 1-yard line.
Tennessee Tech fell to 1-1. This was the first meeting between the schools since 1953. Miami won the first game 44-6.
Miami (1-1) plays Cincinnati (1-1) in Week 3 at noon Saturday at Nippert Stadium.
