He tallied 144 yards on five kick returns, including the 80-yard touchdown return. His average for the afternoon was 28.8 yards per return.
Miller has 283 kickoff return yards on 12 attempts for a 23.6 yard average. He also has 11 receptions for 73 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown catch against Mt. St. Joseph on Homecoming.
The Beavers return to action on Saturday, Nov. 1, when they travel to Anderson University for a 1:30 p.m. matchup with the Ravens.
