UB is 2-2 vs BGSU at Doyt Perry

UB is 0-1 vs BGSU on Neutral Site


2011 Highlights: Steven Means ran an interception back for a touchdown and BO scored to give UB two separate 10 point leads in the first half, but UB found themselves down 21-20 when Matt Schilz "Malt Liqour" threw a TD pass with 23 seconds left before halftime. BGSU cruised to a 42-28 victory in the second half.

2012 Highlights: From Columbus Crew Stadium, BGSU capitalized on a rare misplay by Najja Johnson, scoring late in the half for the second year in a row, this time from 48 yards out. Again, a DL INT gave Buffalo life, this year Colby Way intercepted a ball which led to an Alex Dennison TD run, but Licata was stymied for the first time in his young career, and BGSU controlled in a 21-7 win that was not as close as the score indicated.


2013 Outlook: The Clash at the Ralph could determine who goes to Detroit.


Players To Watch: Matt Schilz has been great against UB and the BGSU defense as a unit is the best in the MAC.
