The Ohio Bobcats had a really, really bad loss last week at home against Western Michigan. Sitting at 2-1 in conference play, the Bobcats have hardly any wiggle room to let another game get by them like that for as good as Bowling Green has been. But if they want to have any shot at end up being MAC East champions, they'll have to get by their intra-divisional foe against the Buffalo Bulls.
Oh, but here's the fun tidbit that you actually care to read: Lance Leipold spent three years at Nebraska before he became a legend at Wisconsin Whitewater. Those three years, if you remember, were Frank Solich's final three seasons as their head coach (2001-2003).

Players to watch:
Anthone Taylor (RB, Buffalo)- Averaging 86.8 yards per game on the ground this season, Taylor was held to 47 yards last week and hasn't had a 100-yard game since their win over Florida Atlantic.
Joe Licata (QB, Buffalo)- If he puts up 109 yards passing against Ohio, he'll pass the 8,000-yard milestone for his career.
Brandon Berry (LB, Buffalo)- Berry moved from safety to linebacker this year. He leads the team, sixth in the MAC, with 54 tackles.
Derrius Vick (QB, Ohio)- Vick is currently fifth in the MAC with a 64.3 completion percentage, which is much better than his 58.8 percent season last year. He's actually just better all-around, really.
Lucas Powell (C, Ohio)- Powell was named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, and Buffalo is last in the MAC with 28 tackles for loss. But you know, #MACtion and such.
