Buffalo Bulls Record Book Watch- Post Army

NCAA Football: Buffalo at Nevada Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

Believe it or not I do a lot of work in the offseason. For a few years I have been working on compiling UB stats from many sources. Sources include the department, NCAA Archives, some college football websites, and even old Buffalo news papers. Currently the records go from 1954-1970 and 1977-2016.

Most of the stuff I have from the 40’s and 50’s is only for the top two performers on that team. If you have any complete documentation from the 40’s through 1962, or older documentation please pass them along.

Also the documentation from the 80’s is sketchy, as is 1997.


Tyree Jackson...

Statistically this was not an amazing game for Jackson. It was solid but the numbers don’t catch just how great he played.

Still, with the win Jackson is up to 433 yards passing and has moved into 33rd place all time in the unsanctioned Bull Run Record Book.

He passed Stewart Sampsel, Paul DiMiero, Rick Wells, James Allegretto, Charles Daniels , William Crowley, Tony Policare, and Chris Moore.

Next up is Erik Rusin (1999) with 499 yards passing.

How is this season shaping up compared to past seasons?
