EMU at Buffalo Halftime Update: Bulls lead 28-7

Hard to tell if Buffalo is playing well, because the Eagles just look so dadgum bad.

Sprinkle in a few turnovers and some big blown defensive plays and you're all caught up on EMU's first half.

EMU started the game with a three-and-out, to which Branden Oliver responded with a 60-yard touchdown run. 7-0 Bulls.

Two possessions later Bronson Hill fumbled the ball and the Bulls recovered on the EMU 16; Oliver punched it in for a touchdown on the ensuing drive. 14-0 Bulls.

EMU answered with a nice drive, reaching the red zone before Cortney Lester intercepted a Tyler Benz pass in the end zone, bring it out to the 1. Buffalo again trucked right down the field, in a drive highlighted by a 40-yard pass from Joe Licata to Alex Neutz and a bogus pass interefence call against the Eagles, and Licata eventually ran the ball in for a third touchdown. 21-0 Bulls.

EMU again put together a nice drive of their own, with a 40-yard run by Hill setting up an eventual 15-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Benz to Jay Jones. 21-7 Bulls.

After an offside penalty forced the Eagles to kick off a second time, Devin Campbell returned it all the way back 96 yards. 28-7 Bulls.

After that the teams traded three-and-outs. Buffalo nearly scored again just before the half, but the officials ruled that Alex Neutz did not have possession of the ball until after he was through the back of the end zone and Patrick Clarke missed the 41-yard field goal attempt.

So there you are. EMU is down 28-7 at halftime against a team they've never lost to. I've got to think that if this continues into the second half in a similar fashion, we may see the end of the Ron English era sooner rather than later.
