81 days to kickoff: Jacob Byron and Quinn's debut

Will the former Marine help improve UB's short-yardage run game?

Who is wearing #81 in 2015?

Jacob Byron

Hometown: Marion, New York

Year: Junior

Position: Tight End

High School: Marion

A 2008 graduate of Marion High, Byron first joined the US Marine Corp.

Freshman (2013): Byron played linebacker for the Buff State Bengals

Redshirt Freshman (2014) Byron walked-on to UB and redshirted.

Outlook: The largest TE on roster, Byron could find a niche as a blocking tight end in heavy run situations. In addition his experience with playing linebacker should make him a valuable cover man on special teams.

In Jeff Quinn's first game as UB coach, many fears were eased as both the offense and defense excelled against FCS Rhode Island.

On defense, Khalil Mack recorded his first half sack, Josh Thomas had a sack and an interception, Steven Means had 1.5 sacks and Justin Winters recorded a sack and 8 tackles.

On offense, Jerry Davis threw for 302 yards and 4 TDs. Marcus Rivers was the MVP with 10 receptions for 155 yards and a TD with Freshman Alex Neutz impressing with 5 receptions for 99 yards and a TD, where he caught everything in his vicinity. Terrell Jackson and Ed Young also scored.
