2010 Highlights: After redshirting in 2009, Mack started every game in 2010. Mack finished 3rd behind Davonte Shannon and Justin Winters in tackles with 68. Mack led the Bulls with 14.5 tackles for loss, and tied with Steven Means for the sack lead each with 4.5. Mack forced 2 fumbles and led the team in both passes broken up with 10, and QB hurries with 8.

2011 Highlights: Mack started 12 games as a leader of a depleted defensive unit. Mack amassed 65 tackles, 20.5 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, an Interception, 2 pass break ups, 13 QB hurries 5 forced fumbles and a blocked kick. Somehow, Mack did not win defensive player of the year honors, but he was named 1st team All-MAC.

2012 Highlights: A suspension cost Mack his first missed start of his career, but he started the rest, ending the season with 35 career starts. Despite the missed game, Mack led the team in tackles for the first time in his UB career with 94 tackles. He best his 2011 TFL total, again with one less game, by a half tackle with 21 tackles for a loss. Mack led the Bulls again with 8 sacks, and added 2 pass break ups and 4 QB hurries. Finally Mack forced 4 fumbles and blocked another kick. Was named 1st team All -Mac.

2013 Outlook: Mack looks to solidify his position as the greatest linebacker in UB history and sure up his NFL draft profile and get to a bowl game for the first time in his career. The loss of Means puts more pressure on Mack, but the deeper defensive backfield and the emergence of Colby Way should give Mack a lot of room to do what he does best: create carnage behind the line of scrimmage. Mack is 1st team preseason All MAC on Athlon Sports list, and Phil Steele named Mack 1st team All-MAC and 3rd Team All-American.

Nickname (I just made up): "The Conference" , "Fast and Furious 46" & "Mr. TFL"

Record Watch: Mack is the UB career Tackle for loss leader with 56. Mack is the career forced fumble leader with 11. Mack is 5th in career sacks, 6 sacks from tying for first place. Mack is 72 tackles away from 10th for his career, and 10 pass breakups away from 10th best in UB history.
Amazingly Mack does own the single-season record for Tackles For Loss, Sacks or Forced Fumbles. Those records belong to Vince Canosa 21.5 TFL & 12.5 sacks, and Anthony Scott 6 FF.
