Nine games into the the season, UB is flying high, extending their win streak to three with a complete 43-14 win over Eastern Michigan in Ypsilanti Saturday afternoon.
Buffalo used a stout defense and irrepressible run game to roll through the Eagles, whose only score before garbage time opened the game on an early 80-yard heave from Mike Glass to Matthew Sexton. UB’s first points came on a safety five minutes later, and the Bulls added 250+ yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground the rest of the way, cruising to the blowout win.
Kyle Vantrease had perhaps his finest game since taking over the starting role, going 15-23 for 208 yards and touchdown, while scoring twice on the ground.
At 5-4, UB is a win away from bowl eligibility for the third straight season with three games to play. Next up is a road game at Kent State on Thursday, 11/14.
