Rushing:

Jordan Johnson is on pace to have one of the top 20 seasons by a UB running back and should end up as one of the top ten ever to suit up for the Bulls.

Receiving

Mason Schreck and Marcus McGIll are Buffalo's leading receivers. Neither is on pace for a ground breaking season but both Seniors have a shot at being in the top 25 UB receivers of all time.

Passing

Starting to see some interesting names around Tyree Jackson. If the freshman has a great game he may catch Gordon Bukaty. Bukaty led the great UB teams of the late 50's.
