Buffalo (2-2) and Miami (0-4) will each try to start the MAC East portion of the schedules with a victory when they meet this afternoon.
The Buffalo Bulls will look to build on the momentum they gained from their dominant performance versus Norfolk State, beating the Spartans 36-7 last Saturday. UB will also look to have another solid performance versus the run, as they only allowed 116 yards on 46 carries in last week's victory. Buffalo will also be looking for another solid outing from quarterback Joe Licata, who threw for 229 yards and found the end zone three times on just 13 completions in the Bulls' second victory over a FCS foe this year. Halfback Anthone Taylor will also attempt to leave his mark on RedHawk defense, as he looks to repeat his 129-yard performance from a week ago.
Chuck Martin and the Miami RedHawks will look to snap a losing a streak that dates back two seasons when they take the field today. The RedHawks fans do have several reasons to be optimistic, as Miami came close to topping their rival, the Cincinnati Bearcats in The Battle for the Victory Bell lat Saturday, only falling 31-24. Miami gave up 17 unanswered points in the second quarter, after taking a 14-7 lead seconds into the final frame of the first half. The RedHawks have been led offensively by signal caller Andrew Hendrix and wide out David Frazier, who pulled in 5 catches for 132 yards and two TDs in last week's loss. The defense has been led by cornerback Quinten Rollins, who has four INTs on the season, including picking off Cincy QB Gunner Kiel twice last week.
The RedHawks and Bulls have met 16 times in their respective history, with Miami having a 12-4 lead on the all-time series, even though UB has won the last two meetings.
Here is how you can see the two MAC East foes go at at it when they meet later today.
