It's not beating an SEC football team but I'll take it.
This has not been a banner year for UB Athletics... Literally there are no banners to show this season! The Men's swimming team came the closest in the MAC and the women's rowers are always in the mix but that in the Colonial Athletic Association.
So in a year where UB has had their shre of heartbreak it's nice to see the ladies step up and put a #15 Big 12 team in their place!

Holly Johnson allowed just a walk over the last two innings as the Bulls pull off the upset against a nationally ranked team on their home field.
Speaking of the crew team:
They have started out really well in their attempt to retake the CAA title.

Continuing down the "Non Revenue" theme
Injuries and Desi Green's inability to quit weed kept the Bulls wrestling team from being as competitive as they should have been this year. Still there were some highlights! Mark Lewandowski was honored at the inaugural NCAA Mens Wrestling awards.
