1 week to kickoff: Marcus McGill


Who is wearing #7 in 2015?

Marcus McGill

Hometown: Rochester, New York

Year: Senior

Position: Wide Receiver

High School: Gates Chili

Freshman (2012): McGill played in 12 games making 2 tackles on special teams.

Sophomore (2013): McGill played in the first three games before sustaining a season-long injury.

Junior (2014): Marcus McGill played in every game and was 2-2 as a starter. He caught 22 balls for 343 yards and 3 TDs with his best day coming at Army where he caught 7 for 128 yards and 2 TDs.

Outlook: In his last year, (unless he applied for a medical hardship for his sophomore year) McGill is one of Joe Licata's many returning targets, McGill isn't one of the two starting receivers, but he has been one of the big play makers in practice. With so many weapons there will be plays to be had, and the season-long competition should make each WR better this year.

#7 UB Football Game

November 3, 2009 - UB 29, BGSU 30

UB started the game with a heavy dose of Ike Nduka. The running back ran for 20 yards on the opening drive and capped it with a 3-yard TD run. BGSU tied the game after blocking a John Rachuna punt, but UB answered quickly. This time led by Mario Henry, who ran for 15-yards including a 2-yard TD to put UB up 14-7. That drive was aided by a roughing the kicker penalty, which turned a field goal drive into a TD drive. After a BGSU TD, UB took a 21-13 lead with a Zach Maynard to Jesse Rack TD pass. UB maintained a 21-13 lead into the half.

In the third, BGSU kicked a field goal to open the second half and forced a UB punt, but BGSU fumbled the punt return setting UB up at the 5-yard line. Jeffvon Gill punched the ball in and UB took a 29-16 lead following a Maynard two point conversion run.

UB's offense went 9 plays for 7 yards following that TD. A second blocked punt by BGSU set up their third TD giving UB a precarious 29-23 lead. With eight minutes remaining, UB went conservative, running the ball 8 times and taking 5 minutes off the clock, but only moving to the 42-yard line before punting. With 3 minutes remaining, BGSU needed 75 yards for the win. With 39 seconds remaining, BGSU scored, and despite only leading for 39 seconds, BGSU led when it counted with the clock showing all zeroes.
