|Depth vs Kent|
After seemingly righting the ship last week against Akron the Bulls will play their final home game of the season, hosting Kent State. Of all the teams in the MAC UB has had the most consistent success against Kent.
The Bulls have won five of the last seven meetings. This season Kent is still struggling to find an identity under Paul Haynes, who's in his second season.
The Flashes are 1-9 heading into the game, only defeating Army back in October. UB is 4-6 and fired their coach, Jeff Quinn, shortly after a loss to Eastern Michigan.
Following Quinn's departure the Bulls went into an offensive coma for two weeks. In doing so they dropped games against Central Michigan and Ohio. Then, last week against Akron, the Bulls offense exploded for one of their best performances of the FBS era.
Joe Licata is the only quarterback in the MAC that has thrown a touchdown pass in every game this season. Last week he threw four strikes and is now at 56 career touchdown passes, the first of which game him UB's outright record. The previous record of 52 was held by current Winnipeg Blue Bomber Drew Willy (2005-08). His next touchdown pass will give him the outright school record for single-season touchdown passes.
Also reemerging last week was Anthone Taylor. The junior now has 1,166 yards on the season, and 1,585 in his career. He is fifth all time in yards and sixth all time in yards per carry among UB backs that have touched the ball 100 times.
On defense Lee Skinner and Adam Redden have led a unit that started a surge after Eastern Michigan. Redden leads the MAC in tackles for loss with 14 and has had at least one TFL in five straight games and eight of 10 games this season.
