Buffalo’s 2021 full slate of games is set, all that remains is some dates and times.

Non Conference Slate

It’s a nice layout, made so by the strong season Coastal Caronlina just finished. UB has their FCS (tune up) game, a winnable P5 game, a solid home game against a 2020 ranked opponent, and one more winnable G5 game.

Depending on how the team fills the holes left after attrition anywhere between two and four wins here is possible.

  • Wagner (Home) - 9/4
  • Nebraska (Road) - 9/11
  • Coastal Carolina (Home) - 9/18
  • Old Dominion (Road) - 9/26

Conference Home Games

Hopefully we are have fans at home next season, if we do Buffalo has Ohio coming in for what is usually a very important game in the MAC East.

  • Bowling Green
  • Ohio
  • Northern Illinois
  • Western Michigan

Conference Road Games

Kent and Miami on the road may be a challenge, both teams are very solid and should compete for the East. Ball State is returning 20 of their starters from a ranked conference champion.

  • Akron
  • Kent State
  • Miami (OH)
  • Ball State

While Buffalo has not managed to win a conference title they are as healthy a program has they have ever been lately.

In the past three seasons division titles, three bowl appearances with two wins, and a top 25 ranking. On paper the team might take a step back next season, but the last time we looked to be “rebuilding” in 2019 The Bulls won their first Bowl Game.
