Talking Bull: What football should you watch this week?

The MACC game is ranked pretty well among 'watchable' championship games.

College Football Conference Championship Games: Ranking Them From Best To Worst -
Joe Tessitore calling the MAC Championship Game. JOE TESSITORE CALLING THE MAC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. The SEC may win the titles with their punt-on-third-down style, but the MAC has entertained us over the last month with their any-playcall-at-any-moment, defense-optional approach to football. Granted, the Entertainment Value is only an eight in the scale above because Ohio is involved and Tyler Tettleton and company don't have quite the same offensive cachet (all of the really fun teams -- NIU, Toledo, Western Michigan -- are in the MAC West), this game promises fourth-quarter drama. So here's what you do: Tune into this game until 8:00 PM ET, watch the first half of Oregon-UCLA (or until the game gets out of hand ... so, the first quarter), then flip back for the final 15-20 minutes of MACtion.

Buffalo Football:

UB sees progress if not good record - Sports - The Buffalo News
At the same time, Manuel believes UB is making headway under head coach Jeff Quinn. This year's 3-9 team was more competitive than last year's 2-10 team, as evidenced by the win over Ohio and a one-point loss to Northern Illinois, the other entry in the Mid-American Conference title game. Sophomore running back Branden Oliver set the school season record for rushing yards (1,395). Sophomore linebacker Khalil Mack was one of the more dynamic defensive players in the MAC.

"Grading myself off wins and losses, [I haven't done] too well," Quinn said. "But building the program on the right foundation, I think you're exactly where you want to be. No one cares about this program more than myself. A championship culture will take place at the University at Buffalo. That's what people deserve and that's what I came here to do."

Buffalo Basketball:

Bulls Come Off Break For Wednesday Road Test at Dayton - Buffalo Athletics
Looking to earn its first road win of the season, the Buffalo men's basketball team will face the Dayton Flyers Wednesday evening in the first meeting ever between the two teams. Team will be the operative word as both teams are deep in scoring options. The Bulls (3-1) last played November 22 in a convincing 94-59 win over rival Canisius while Dayton (5-1) spent the past weekend wrapping up a title at the Old Spice Classic in Orlando.
