September 8, 2012 - Buffalo 56 - Morgan State 34 - The Offense Explodes Against Morgan State

When Jeff Quinn was hired, Buffalo fans imagined a wide-open offensive attack blasting enemies into submission at UB Stadium. However after 24 games, Buffalo only averaged 331 yards per game, and only 18 points per game.

Quinn's Bulls exceeded that average against the superior Georgia Bulldogs, the #6 team in the Nation. The Bulls gained 347 yards and scored 23 points. In the second game of the year, Buffalo showed what they could do against inferior talent.

Buffalo gained the second most yardage of the Quinn era with 571 yards, second only to the 572 yards gained in the comeback game against NIU in 2011.

Alex Zordich threw four Touchdowns, becoming the sixth Quarterback in UB history to throw four or more Touchdowns in a single game. His first Touchdown pass went to Jimmy Gordon, the next three went to Alex Neutz.

Joe Licata only threw two passes, but one was a Touchdown to Neutz. Neutz's fourth Touchdown reception of the year tied Chris D'Amico's single game Touchdown receptions record. D'Amico held the record alone for almost 29 years.

Finally, Branden Oliver broke his own career best by 3 yards, gaining 238 yards on 25 carries. The 238-yard day stands as the second best in UB history behind Alan Bell's 266 in 1991. BO now owns the second and third highest single-game run outputs in UB history.
