Buffalo is looking to grow from a game which was too close for comfort and Army is looking for their first home opening win against an FBS team for quite some time. It's the first of a long overdue for game series for two schools located in the Empire State.
Army is of course breaking in a new coach who is trying to turn around a program which has fallen far behind it's fellow service academies. Jeff Monken has coached just about everywhere, including Buffalo. He loves the triple option and used it last season to take down Florida in the Swap with nothing but a decent FCS team.
The Bulls blew a 21-0 lead last week to the Dukes, falling behind 24-28 before a late rally gave UB the 10 point win. Last season UB had a close call to another FCS team and then proceeded to roll off six decisive wins. Will this years edition of Buffalo football answer the challenge like last years team?
Buffalo is 2-1 all time against Army and 2-0 since the team returned to division one.
