Well we have beat the bad from the Duquesne game to death, now it's time to get more upbeat as Buffalo moves towards the Army game.Well do that along with this weeks record watch.
First up is Joe Licata who moved up two positions on UB's all time completions list. He now sits at number six behind Chad Salisbury. Coincidentally he is also behind Salisbury for attempts where Joe Licata is ranked 8th. I suspect it will be at least two games before Licata passes Chad in either category.
He might pass Frank Reilly in passing yards this week though, he only needs another 58 yards to move into 6th all time. It will be some weeks before Licata moves the bar on touchdown passes. He is 4th all time but a whopping 9 behind Cliff Scott.

The big story for the Bulls was of course Ron Willoughby. There was a little movement by other receivers on the Buffalo offense; like Hughes moving up to #26 in yards or Ross climbing five spots in receptions. But the game Willoughby had saw him vault a huge number of players in every category.
The Junior from Avon Lake moved up 20 spots in career receptions, 22 spots in yards, and 20 spots in touchdowns.
Having spent two seasons on the bench behind Alex Neutz means that Ron is still well outside the top 20 in any category but he is starting to crack into that 30-40 range.

Finally the defense. Skinner had a good day for Buffalo. He moved up a spot in Tackles and Assist but fell one spot in the Sacks category because of Adam Reddens two and a half sack effort.
Lester moved up one spot in Passes defended to #8 all time and with a three way tie in front of him can jump all the way to 5 with his next two downed passes.
Adam Redden moved up two spots in sacks, passing Lee Skinner along the way. He also moved up one spot in tackles for loss where he tied Skinner. Both Skinner and Redden are looking up at Justin Winters in TFL's. They sit 1.5 behind the Winters.

Disclaimer: UB Records are somewhat incomplete and not all that easy to gather up. I my confidence in these rankings, particularly for defense, starts falling off after the top 20 or so. My record book is a work in progress.
