Friday: Baylor Bears at Buffalo Bulls
Sunday: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills
Sunday: Atlanta Falcons at Cincinnati Bengals

Hard to fathom as spring slowly arrives in Buffalo, but if Buffalo gets an early winter, this would be a good weekend for 20 degrees and snow. If Snow isn't your thing, travel a few hours south for MACK WATCH, the Falcons have the #6 pick in the NFL draft.

Separated by only one hour, UB fans can watch the Bulls pave their way to Ford Field, and then go to Ford Field to see the Bills play.

October 11-12

Saturday: Buffalo Bulls at Eastern Michigan Eagles
Sunday: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

The best part about this weekend is if the Bulls play in the early afternoon, you are 15 minutes from Penn State at Michigan in the Big House under the lights at 7pm. If the game ends at 10pm, and it's 5 hours drive back to Buffalo, you'd be in Orchard Park in time to start tailgating.

October 11-12

October 19-20

Monday: Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers

Double-dose of MACK WATCH
Quickly switching loyalties isn't just for Drake anymore. Sing "Seven Nation Army" with the Ravens on Sunday, and then sing "Black and Yellow" with the Steelers on Monday night, or root against both teams and for whatever team has Khalil Mack, the Texans have the #1 overall pick while the Falcons have the #6 pick.

October 25-26

Sunday: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

Another Buffalo to New York trip, just not the same without Sanchez at QB.
