Two UB Alumni Miracles In Two Days

UB takes the CFL by Storm this week.

Tom Szczerbowski

Remember the 2008 Bulls who made a habit of coming back from behind to win games in amazing fashion? They're backkkkkk.

Thursday Night down 26-20 with 100 seconds left Drew Willy marched his Winnipeg Blue Bombers 93 yards. With one play left, Winnipeg needed a touchdown. Willy magic prevailed, throwing a 2-yard game tying touchdown with no time remaining, and the ensuing extra point gave Winnipeg the win.


Winnipeg's win kept them even with conference leading Calgary, undefeated at 4-0, who hosted the BC Lions tonight. Ernest Jackson had another game where he failed to make an impact. He had 2 catches for 17 yards, he drew a pass interference call and dropped a 2-point conversion that would have tied the game.

However down 24-19 with 92 seconds to go, Kevin Glenn found an open Ernest Jackson who caught the pass, then cut into the middle of the field to break away from would-be tacklers and into the end zone. The 65-yard TD reception was EJ's first TD reception in two seasons.


The BC defense held allowing EJ's score to stand as the game winner.

The win brought BC to 3-3, 2 games behind Winnipeg, who took sole possession of the best record in the CFL, a half game ahead of the Albertan squads.

2 days, 2 game winning TDs from Buffalo alums. No lead is safe, if a Bull is on the trailing team.
