#75 UB Football Game

November 26, 20XX - UB 14, Akron 22

Two years prior, Buffalo closed down the Rubber Bowl, defeating Akron in OT, making UB the front-runners for the MAC East title. In 20XX, UB was 2-9 and Akron was 0-11; from the Rubber Bowl to the toilet bowl.

After 25-minutes of poor football, UB made mistakes that Akron turned into points. First a blocked punt led to an Akron TD and on the next drive, a Jerry Davis Interception led to a second TD and a 12-0 halftime lead for Akron.

Akron started the 2nd half with their most impressive drive of the game, only to fumble the ball on the 17-yard line. UB drove down the field and capitalized with a 13-yard Alex Neutz TD catch. Akron however scored on the next drive to extend their lead to 12, 19-7.

UB's defense stiffened with help from Davonte Shannon, who became UB's all-time leader in career tackles during the game. Late in the fourth, down 22-7, UB made it a one-possession game with a second Davis to Neutz TD pass. With 2 minutes remaining, UB recovered an onside kick and Davis found Neutz for a 28 yard reception at the 17-yard line. On 1st and 10 from the 17, Jerry Davis ended the 20XX season in pure 20XX fashion, with a sack and a fumble recovered by Akron.
