2015 NFL Schedule released, Buffalo alumni to face off at least seven times

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL released the 2015 schedule today and while it's not that big of a deal, it is neat to flip through and make a tally of games involving UB Alumni. Since Khalil Mack and Branden Oliver are both on the West Coast, UB fans in Buffalo will once again get many chances to see them in the 4:30 time slots.

In addition to Mack (Oakland Raiders) and BO (San Diego Chargers), there's also of course James Starks (Green Bay Packers), Steven Means (Baltimore Ravens), and Jake Schum (New York Jets), who is right now on a futures contract.

As best I can tell, Josh Thomas and Trevor Scott are free agents.

Should things stay the same roster-wise, here are the games featuring multiple UB alums, or UB alums in prime time, and each player's closest trip to Buffalo for any diehards looking to see them in the NFL:

When Kristjan Sokoli makes a team, we'll certainly update you. If Trevor and Josh are picked up, that would add a lot more to the list, as well.
