FINAL: Buffalo 44, Miami University 7

It took Buffalo a full quarter and some Khalil Mack heroics to get going tonight, but once they did, Miami did not stand a chance.

The Bulls posted four touchdowns in the second quarter to begin the runaway, then added three field goals in the second half before closing their scoring with a Tony Daniel-to-Devon Hughes touchdown connection.  The RedHawks earned their touchdown in garbage time, as Drew Kummer scored on a two-yard run with 3:04 remaining in the game.

Buffalo out-gained Miami 517-200 and had 27 first downs to Miami's 9.  The Bulls converted on 11 of 17 third-down attempts and held the RedHawks to just one conversion in ten chances.  While Buffalo was rushing for 311 yards, Miami's quarterbacks combined to complete only 25% of their passes -- just five of 20 -- for 65 yards.

Joe Licata threw for 172 yards and had one touchdown and an interception, as he completed 20 of 32 attempts.  Branden Oliver had just five carries in the second half (as if Buffalo needed more) and finished the night with 26 carries, 150 yards and two touchdowns.  Anthony Taylor added 154 yards on 17 carries, gathered mostly in the second half.  Ten different receivers caught a pass for the Bulls.

Miami's Austin Gearing accounted for all of his team's pass completions, earning five in 19 attempts.  Kummer missed on his only pass attempt.  Gearing carried the ball 21 times for 40 yards, and that included one 25-yard run.  Robert Williams III had a 47-yard run and ended the night with 3 carries and 48 yards.  David Frazier was the recipient of three of Miami's five completions, and those went for 52 yards.

Buffalo improves to 8-3 (6-1 MAC) with the win and now awaits a visit from Bowling Green at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Friday, Nov. 29th.  The winner of that game will capture the MAC East championship and play in the MAC Championship Game.

Miami (0-11, 0-7 MAC) will have one final chance to win a game in 2013 when they travel to Muncie, Ind. on Friday, Nov. 29th for a game with the Ball State Cardinals.
