Why Buffalo Edge Match Edge Why UCF
The Bulls now have a game against a legit defense under their belts and after the first quarter they moved the ball ok.


This, and the fact that UCF has has little success against the pass, mean UB might move the ball with ease.

The ability of the UCF front seven is not in question, if they can nullify the Bulls ground attack then Jerry Davis gets to face one of the better pass rushes in nation (8th in 2009).

On the flip side the Knights live in a wide open conference so nothing UB will try is new to them.
Aside from a few killer plays the Bulls defense managed themselves respectably. 

UCF's skill players are nowhere near the level play that UB saw last week, in fact they are breaking in their own new Quarterback.

UCF moved the ball pretty well on NCS state, especially when Godfrey took the reigns. If UCF can avoid the turnover problems that have plagued them the fast couple of years they might be able to put up some points on the Bulls.
I honestly can't thing of one. Save that UCF's field goal kicking has been worse than ours over over the past 15 games.

They have a monster return team, and that is an area of constant struggle for UB. If it's close enough that a field goal will decide it they might be in trouble, otherwise they should win this.
Quinn's ability to move past the problems that UB had during the transition (Maynard etc...) is more than enough to deal with one flat performance in Waco.

As much as fun as one can have at the expense of OLeary's resume gaff with Notre Dame I would be lying if I tried to call him less accomplished than Quinn.
