Canisius slapped Buffalo's midcourt after its come-from-behind win exactly a year ago, so Buffalo responded with a hard hand of its own in this year's edition of the rivalry.

The University at Buffalo left Canisius searching at every turn Tuesday night. The Bulls tormented their non-conference rival on the interior. They broke Canisius hearts from the outside.

UB’s starting point guard, Byron Mulkey, walked on after graduating from Niagara-Wheatfield in 2006 and had a standout freshman season before being put on scholarship. Mulkey arrived with John Boyer, who maintained his walk-on status for four years, and led the country in assist-to-turnover ratio as a senior.

Miami Dominates Temple To Earn Share of East Division Title - MAC-Sports.com—Official Web Site of the Mid-American Conference
Senior Thomas Merriweather raced 96 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown which tied the second-longest run in Miami history, highlighting a 23-3 win against Temple on Tuesday evening at Yager Stadium. The win secured the RedHawks a share of the Mid-American Conference East Division title.

Miami 23, Temple 3: Cradle of Quizzicality - Hustle Belt
Maybe Temple didn't have much to play for. A ninth win? Sure ... but their effective season was washed away in a torrid downpour. They were playing for, maybe, a better bowl resume, a feat which may be moot, because there are probably some board members out there who prefer the ratings sex appeal of Temple over Miami regardless. At least they appeared to play like it was a meaningless game tonight: 215 yards of offense, four turnovers, two failed field goals, and seven sacks allowed.

Previous Evening MAC Review: Quatro Cinch - Hustle Belt
UB's supposed to be a little iffy this year, right? Well, they're 3-1 and just pounced on a team that crushed a much-better Eastern Michigan team. We may need to reevaluate our prejudices. Byron Mulkey went wild for 23 points (8-for-8 free throw shooting) and five assists. Season-leading scorer Zach Filzen had his 13 as well, thanks to a few threes. Now it's time for an actual road trip; one where they leave city limits. Buffalo's next game: Saturday, 11/27 at Indiana State
