via buffalobulls.com

While the Bulls Offense was far from devine, Alex Neutz snagged a Hail Mary to score the Bulls only Touchdown.

The 99th season of UB football began September 1st in Athens and continues this Saturday as the Bulls travel to Storrs to take on UConn. 99 4 99 will run until the MAC Championship game on November 30th. During the Season, the 99 for 99 Instant Classic will immortalize the best moment from the previous game, and let you, the reader decide the best moment of the season.

September 19, 2012 - Buffalo 7 - Kent State 23 - Alex Neutz ends half with a Hail Mary TD Reception

Where did the UB offense go? After Eight touchdowns against Morgan State, UB only managed 118 yards in the first half against Kent. Buffalo's offense went 3-and-out 4 times, and committed two costly turnovers. Fortunate to be down only 10-0 following a Kent missed field goal, Buffalo had 38 seconds to move 67 yards. Obviously that wasn't going to happen on this night. Aided by Kent penalties, Buffalo found themselves on the Kent 46 with time for one last heave.

First Zordich scrambled right into All-MAC defenseman Roosevelt Nix. Zordich got the pass off with such a high arch there was no way it would make it to the end zone, just Buffalo's luck we'd catch it and get tackled down at the 4. Five or six Kent defenders seemed to be at the balls landing point, while the Bull receivers all seemed to be running back from the endzone, too late to get into position to make a play on the ball. As the ball floated into a seemingly inevitable interception, Alex Neutz out-jumped everyone, landed and snuck into the end zone. It was if Neutz was in real time, while everyone else on the field was in slow motion, helpless to stop the blur of blue from scoring.

Unfortunately, the spark provided by the catch did not catch fire in the second half. Kent outscored the Bulls 13-0 Neutz only had one more reception on the night, and the Bulls would go on to lose one of their more disappointing games in recent history.
