Buffalo Opponents Review: BCS Edition #5

New, 3 comments

#2 In State with help from an old friend.

The Good: We have a win streak comprised of beating conference foes.

The Better: Stony Brook loses to our old friend Turner Gill at Liberty, fall below us in the rankings.

The Best: We are in the top 100 in 3 of the 6 computer polls...progress!

Sagarin does not care about the MAC. They have us ranked 148, Ohio at 95! Kent at 65! and NIU at 42. He needs to get off the algorithms and start watching MAC games!
