2010 Highlights - In coach Quin'ns first season Buffalo struggled to move the ball but when it was moving it was often in the hands of Oliver. As a redshirt freshman Oliver Led the team in rushing with 298 yards on the year. He also caught five passes for 92 yards.

2011 Highlights - Spent the season breaking several UB records as the main weapon by the most effective offense fielded by the Bulls since 2008. Oliver broke UB’s single-season records for rushing yards (1,395 yards, a total that ranked 14th in the nation), carries (306) and all-purpose yardage (1,760 yards). He also set a school record by going over 100 yards on eight occasions, and added 13 touchdowns.After the season he was named first-team All-MAC.

2012 Highlights - Olivers 2011 season put him on the Maxwell, Doak Walker, and Walter Camp preseason watch lists. And his play in the early weeks would have kept him there had he not been injured half way through the seasons third game. Missing about half the season Oliver still led the team in rushing with 821 yards.

2013 Outlook - Oliver is back to 100% and looks to pick up where he left off before last years injuries. The only wrinkle is the change at Quarterback where for the first time in his career Oliver will work with a pocket passer rather than dual threat quarterback.
