Does this sound familiar? Bulls out gained their opponent, look better on both sides of the ball, but down in points. Oh by the way, special teams killed us.
That was the story last year when the Bulls battled the Huskies. The Huskies were actually out gained 279-181 in yards but were down at half 17-10. Bulls entered the locker room down a TD thanks to a couple of turnovers, one being a dropped punt, and a missed field goal.
Chazz Anderson had his way going 35 of 53 passing for 404 yards and 3 TDs. His only mistake in the 4th quarter was throwing an interception to CB Rashaan Melvin. RB Branden Olvier cut up the defense for 112 yds on 28 carries. Right at the end, Buffalo had a chance to tie the game, but missed an extra point and the Huskies barely got by for the victory.
Can UB get all three units, Offense, Defense, and Special Teams be in sync and pick up their first MAC win of the season? Is this year redemption year?
I thought that UB would be a 12 point dog. First line was 13 and then had moved up to 14.5. Dropped down to 12 back up to 13 again and as the weekend approaches back up to 14.5 with an over/under of 56. See the picks below the jump, 17 picks in overall with 5 for UB, combined pick of 36 - 22.
