99 for 99 takes a look at the 99 biggest moments in UB Football history during this season, the 99th season of UB Football. These moments are not in any order, however the top 10 moments have been saved for last.

October 25, 2003 - Buffalo 26, Ohio 17- Buffalo Snaps 18-Game Losing Streak

UB lost 18 consecutive games, 7 by two touchdowns or less, 10 by 20 points or more. There were two tipping points for UB, the point where the game got out of reach and the point where the game got out of hand. Against Ohio the out of reach point seemed to come early in the second quarter.

Ohio scored two touchdowns, but they missed both extra points, a lucky break for UB. That luck was wiped out, a minute later as UB was trapped in their own end zone for a safety. Down 14-0 early, the question seemed to be would UB lose big or small. UB only scored 11 points per game to date in 2003,

P.J. Piskorik led the Bulls down the field three times, scoring on a Matt Knueven 58 yard TD catch, a 21 yard Dallas Pelz field goal and a 6 yard QB scamper for a touchdown to tie the game 17-17 with 10 minutes remaining in the game. The Buffalo defense remained solid, holding Ohio to only 3 points in the final 43:10 of the game. Dallas Pelz rebounded from 2 misses in the first half to go 4-4 in the second half, giving UB a 3 point, 6 point and the dagger, a 9 point lead with 1:58 remaining in the game.

The win was only the 4th MAC win by the Bulls in their 5 seasons in the conference, but it was the second win over the Bobcats, starting the trend of UB domination of Ohio at home. UB is 4-2 against Ohio at UB Stadium since joining the MAC, but 1-7 against the Bobcats in Peden Stadium.
