Today the MAC East Award for Defensive player of the week was awarded to senior defensive end Colby Way. He garnered the award for wreaking havoc in the Western Michigan backfield  in the Bulls’ 33-0 win at Kalamazoo on Saturday.

Way had a career-high three sacks as UB’s defensive unit notched just its second ever shutout of a MAC opponent and the first road shutout since 1965. The senior defensive end had four total tackles in the game, but it was his timely sacks that played a huge part in the Bulls' shutout.

Early in the game with UB clinging to a  6-0 lead, Way had two sacks on the same drive. Buffalo ended up moving the Broncos from the UB 19-yard line to out of field goal range. Then in the third quarter, with Buffalo holing a 9 point lead Way had a sack for a loss of 15 yards that moved the ball from the UB 43 to the Western Michigan 42, forcing another punt.

Through six games this season Way has five sacks (all solo) and 7.5 tackles for loss. This past weekend he moved into ninth in school history with 15 career sacks.

So long as opposing defenses keep their focus on Khalil Mack UB fans can expect a lot more fireworks from Colby Way.
