Buffalo Turns Short Field into 7, leads Toledo 14-7 at the Half

The rain continues to stymie both offenses, but give a team only 42 yards to paydirt, and they'll make it in a typhoon, as the Bulls used a touchdown pass to take a 14-7 lead over the Rockets at the half.

Midway through the 2nd Quarter, a high punt by Vince Penza was further abused by the wind, giving Buffalo the ball on Toledo's 42 yard line. Buffalo capitalized in one play, when Alex Zordich found Devin Campbell wide open, and he galloped into the end zone for the score. The Bulls managed 192 yards of offense in the first half.

Meanwhile, the normally potent Toledo offense can't do a thing: Terrance Owens is 5/15 with two picks (in his defense, two of those incomplete passes were delivered right into the chest of Bernard Reedy), David Fluellan's homecoming has only produced 50 yards on 12 carries. Against Cincinnati's defense, it's understandable, but even in this weather, it's mystifying.
