99 for 99 - #98: Chaz Ahmed's Big Day

99 for 99 takes a look at the 99 biggest moments in UB Football history in anticipation of the 99th Season of UB Football which begins on September 1st, 2012. These moments are not in any order, however the top 10 moments have been saved for last.

October 27, 1990 - Chaz Ahmed sets a UB record with 13 receptions, and finished with 175 yards and 2 touchdowns. UB wins 44-29.

The 1990 Bulls were in the middle of a disappointing decade between the '86 9-2 team and the '96 8-3 team. A bright spot came on October 20th as the Bulls snapped a 7 game losing streak, defeating Brockport at home. The next week they traveled down the 90 to face the Mercyhurst Lakers in Erie.

The game was exciting from the beginning, UB fell behind 21-20 in the first quarter, scoring on a 65 yard run by Alan Bell and a 31 yard touchdown reception by Ahmed. In the second quarter, Mercyhurst's offense cooled down but UB's did not, Frank Reilly tossed touchdown passes to Jim Duprey and Ahmed as UB took a 34-21 lead into the half.

Mercyhurst closed within 5 points, but a Tom McLaughlin field goal and a 1 yard plunge for Alan Bell's 3rd touchdown of the day ensured a UB victory.

In addition to Ahmed breaking a 12-year single-game reception record, the team set a record for total offense gained in a single-game, racking up 625 yards. The stars of the day were also all local products...Quarterback Reilly from Olean, Running Back Bell from Grover Cleveland, and Ahmed from St. Joe's.
