Mack Watch:

Mack read a bootleg, put the pressure on Negron, Way eventually filled in for the sack.

Showed his Bull rush vs OSU, in the 1st showed his swim move repeatedly getting underneath the tackle cleanly. Mack pressured the QB twice, with one leading to an interception. Mack also met Coker in the backfield twice, notching another tackle for a loss.

10-15 yard zone:

Stony went 4 for 6 for 49 yards in the 10-15 yard zone. The first miss was a drop, the second was open but e. Three thrown left, two right and one middle.

Buffalo 3 - Stony Brook 0

Strategy:

Offense:

Adjustment I wanted: Remove PA pass and read option from the playbook and give Potts more carries running left. I also wanted to see more targets to Lee

What we did instead: Throw 5 consecutive screens with diminishing results. Keyed in on Neutz and ignored Lee.

Defense:

Adjustment I wanted: Attack the QB and drop deeper in zone coverage to prevent intermediate throws.

What we did instead: Generally we made the right adjustments.

Quarter MVP: Alex Neutz, for not refusing to run another WR screen...I would have.
