Key errors send Buffalo to Defeat against Ohio
The Buffalo Bulls managed to rack up more passing yards, more running yards, more first downs, a better third down conversion percentage, and stack up a ten minute advantage in time of possession. Unfortunately for the Bulls turnovers and poor special teams lifted the Bobcats to their sixth win of the season.
Two UB Players steeped in and helped spark the Buffalo offense to one of its best showings in years.
Devon Campbell stepped in for Branden Oliver and rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown. He added 20 more yards on two receptions.
Buffalo came hard out of the gates taking the ball down the field on two long drives. The first was off of the kickoff and the second followed an interception deep in their own end by Najja Johnson.
Things changed when Ohio took the kickoff following UB's second touchdown end to end to bring the score to 14-7. Before the first half was over Ohio turned the tables on Buffalo and went in to intermission with a 21-14 lead. They would add three more before UB started to climb back into the game.
Dennison hit Neutz for 55 yards to bring UB to within 3 and then Patrick Clarke hit a 30 yard field goal to tie the game.
Ohio would take charge on a power running game led by Ryan Boykin. In the fourth quarter the Bobcats wore down UB's defense with their two longest drives of the game. UB would add a late score by Alex Dennison but fail to recover an onside kick.
Ohio's first two offensive touchdowns came on drives of just 14 and 15 yards, both followed Buffalo Turnovers. UB's score drives went 75, 93, 82, 57, and 77 yards.
