99 for 99 takes a look at the 99 biggest moments in UB Football history in anticipation of the 99th Season of UB Football which begins on September 1st, 2012. These moments are not in any order, however the top 10 moments have been saved for last.
After starting 1-5, UB had hope to finish 500. They defeated Brockport 28-7 and snuck by Alfred 21-20. The 3-5 Bulls would not win again, losing their final two matchups by a combined 7 points. The loss to Albany featured vintage O.D Underwood. Underwood had rushed for under 600 yards on the season, but rushed for 201 yards on 30 carries against Albany. Despite the drop off in production, Underwood's '87 campaign stands as the 10th best rushing season in UB history. Underwood left UB with the #1, #2 and #3 best games rushing the ball. The Albany game was #2, and 191 yards against Canisius in '86 was #3. Today, the Albany game is the 7th best individual rushing performance and the Canisius game is the 9th best.
For his career, Underwood finished:
#1 in rushing yards with 2,062, now 4th behind Starks, Swan and Bell. He also has the most yards per carry out of the top 4 backs in UB history.
#2 in Touchdowns with 23, now 5th in UB history behind Starks, Jones, Swan and Bell.
