Buffalo ends wacky game with 27-24 win vs. Miami

Where to begin. I had trouble watching the online feed after the first quarter, but after a first in half in which six total points were scored ... this turned out to be an insane finish. The Bulls and RedHawks kept swapping touchdowns all the way to the final minute, when Zac Dysert tossed a game-tying TD to Nick Harwell with 37 seconds remaining. That was after converting a 4th and 20, which ... sound familiar?

But Buffalo's Devin Campbell made the play of the game with a 47-yard run on the return, setting up a 47-yarder by Patrick Clarke, which was drilled as time expired.

It looks like a bad loss for Miami — and in some ways it is, given that they knocked off unbeaten Ohio last week, now fall to one-win Buffalo. But UB put up a good showing against Toledo last week and has played a grueling schedule thus far. It was only a matter of time until the MAC started eating itself.

In the box score, Branden Oliver had 199 yards on 32 carries and Joe Licata had a decent day getting the rare start: 13-for-24, 127 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Zac Dysert did surpass Ben Roethlisberger as the all-time Miami passer with 241 passing yards and thre touchdowns on 25-for-44 attempts. Harwell caught 10 balls for 62 yards and all three touchdowns.
