#59 UB Football Game

November 11, 2014 - UB 55, Akron 24

Buffalo's season was basically over with 4 consecutive losses and the firing of their head coach, but 4-5 Akron had lost 3 in a row. That said 66% of the UB Bruwpeg picked Akron to win.

The Bruwpegers of little faith seemed right when UB's first drive ended in an Akron pick-six and the next drive an Anthone Taylor fumble. UB put together an impressive 11 play drive, but they were stopped on 4th and 3 at the 33. Their options punt, go for it, or attempt a long field goal. The Bulls decided to put Jordan Johnson at QB and have the big back rumble downhill for the first down...but he didn't, he pulled back and found Matt Weiser for a 33 yard touchdown.

With the game tied, 5 weeks of frustration seemed to fall off the backs of the Bulls. The plays that had escaped them in the previous three games were now being made. The beleaguered defense came up with consecutive 3-and-outs and the UB offense scored consecutive TDs; a 6-yard Joe Licata to Devin Campbell TD pass and a 21-yard Tony Daniel run. Licata added a TD pass to Jacob Martinez to give UB a 27-10 halftime lead.

Licata completed 16 of 21 passes for 193 yards and 4 TD passes, a nearly flawless performance after the early pick-six. Ron Willoughby, Martinez, Weiser and Campbell all had TD receptions and Anthone Taylor ran for 178 yards and a TD. Jordan Johnson threw for UB's first TD and ran for UB's final TD, while gaining 139 yards of total offense. The defense held Akron to 229 yards of offense and was led as always by Adam Redden who recorded 9 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
