Record Watch : Bowl Game Edition

Rather than our normal record watch format, where we focus on one particular player who may move up in the school record books, Bull Run is going to do a post putting together only the records from the three previous Bowl games that the school has played in.

For the first time in school history two Bowls are being played in a close enough time frame so that UB players will have played in Multiple Bowls. The previous games were in 2008, 2013, and 2018.

Thus a few “Bull Bowl” career records are bound to fall.

Passing:

It very doubtful, given how UB runs their offense, that Kyle Vantrease puts up gaudy numbers. But in terms of quarterback efficency four out of his last five games were better than any UB signal caller has done in a Bowl game.

Bowl Player C att pct YDS Y/A TD INT QBR
18 Dollar General Tyree Jackson 20 35 57.1% 274 7.83 1 1 126.6
13 Potato Joe Licata 13 30 43.3% 196 6.53 3 1 124.5
08 International Drew Willy 29 43 67.4% 213 4.95 0 1 104.4

Rushing:

There is a very good chance that Patterson passes Branden Oliver as UB’s all time leading rusher in Bowl Games. Keven Marks could also, if has has a good day, put BO’s career number behind him.

Receiving:

Last season Antonio Nunn was Buffalo’s leading receiver in the Dollar General Bowl. He is not too far behind Naaman Roosevelt for the all time record.
