Ed. Note: Who owns the jersey felt redundant as UB Football twitter is doing a similar countdown (see above). Follow them and their countdown which features graphics probably prepared by a paid social media professional. Besides our market research shows the new theme will pander to your sense of nostalgia and stimulate more conversation. Dance puppets!
Before moving to #92, a quick look at the games we missed while having a different countdown theme:
#99: 2007 - UB 17, Bowling Green 31
#98: 2010 - UB 9, Miami 21
#97: 2011 - UB 17, EMU 30

#94: 2001 - UB 44, Ohio 0 (ed. note bolded cause HA...Ohio had 2 yards passing in that game, still probably blame the 44 point shut out loss on one arbitrary call in the 1st quarter because Ohio fan!)
#93: 2011 - UB 28, BGSU 42

#92 UB Football Game
September 6, 2008 - UB 16, Pittsburgh 27
UB fell to the Panthers who would finish the season 9-4 while playing with current Buffalo Bill LeSean McCoy. That said, the game was closer than the final score indicated: UB led by six after the first quarter, and was down only 1 point for most of the game.
The Panthers came into the game after a loss against Bowling Green and were still shell-shocked. Buffalo dominated the first quarter, driving into scoring range twice and shutting down Pitt's offense. Instead of a 10 point deficit with their defense on the field, Pitt was down only six due to a blocked UB field goal, and blocked UB extra point. A failed third down conversion by Pitt was nullified by a questionable personal foul call on Mike Newton. The penalty extended the drive and Pitt capitalized with a LeSean McCoy touchdown for the 7-6 Pittsburgh lead.
Down 17-9 early in the third, a 61 yard strike from Drew Willy to Brett Hamlin put the Bulls back within 1 but Pittsburgh scored 10 in the 4th and suffocated UB with their defense to hold on to the 27-16 win.
Shady McCoy ran 20 times for 93 yards and 3 TDs. Many in Buffalo hope he can put up numbers like that this fall.
