In the Kent game Oliver rushed for 185 yards on 31 carries and a career-best four touchdowns against the Golden Flashes. He became just the fourth running back in school history with four or more rushing touchdowns in a game and the first in UB's Division I-A era.
In a tight 7-6 game Oliver would score thye games next four touchdowns to give Buffalo a 34-7 advantage. He had touchdown runs of five, 17, 38 and four yards. Oliver added two receptions for 14 yards to total 199 yards of total offense.
Khalil Mack set up that first touchdown with a one-handed interception at the 10-yard line which he then returned it to the Kent State 45-yard line. He also tied for the game high with 10 tackles (eight solo) and added a sack.
It is the second time in this season as a MAC POW for both Oliver and Mack.
