History:

UB is 4-2 against Ohio at UB Stadium

Wins: 2001 (44-0), 2003 (26-17), 2007 (31-10), 2011 (38-37))

Losses: 2005 (20-34), 2009 (24-27)


2011 Highlights: Ohio won the MAC East, but not before losing to Buffalo at home in Jeff Quinn's signature game as coach. BO ran for 179 yards and 3 touchdowns and Ed Young caught a 90-yard TD reception as UB held off the Bobcats in Amherst.


2012 Highlights: UB's best quarter of the year on offense in 2012 was ruined by a 100 yard kick return. A 14-0 Buffalo lead was countered by 24 Ohio points. UB tied the game going into the 4th quarter but a 51 yard Ryan Boykin TD run in the fouth proved to be the game winner.


2013 Outlook: Ohio again favored to win the MAC East, Buffalo gets 10 days to prepare for Ohio on Tuesday night between a game at Kent and the game at Toledo. Ohio travels to Buffalo after a rivalry game against Miami and before a MAC East highlight match up at Bowling Green.


Players To Watch: QB Tyler Tettleton and RB Beau Blankenship are the leaders on offense and Ohio returns a deep defense, on paper, they are the best team in the MAC East.
