Buffalo at Stony Brook Preview

For only the second time in since both teams created football programs, SUNY siblings Buffalo and Stony Brook are squaring off this weekend. The Bulls (0-2) are coming off of an embarrassing loss on the road to No. 23 Baylor. the Seawolves (1-0) are riding high after a 24-0 win over fellow FCS foe Rhode Island in Week 1.

The first time these two schools faced off was in 2011, when Buffalo rode Brandon Oliver's back to a 35-7 victory. But Stony Brook is no pushover and is coming off of a 10-3 record a season ago. The Seawolves feature a balanced offensive attack led by senior dual-threat quarterback Lyle Negron. After a less than stellar performance by the Bulls' defense a week ago, they will need a strong showing against the 'Wolves this week to restore faith.

The game kicks off Saturday at 3:30 p.m., and can be viewed on ESPN3.
