The Bulls played well in their season opener a week ago. In their first ever game under former Wisconsin-Whitewater head coach Lance Leipold, the Bulls wasted no time disposing of in-state FCS foe Albany. Quarterback Joe Licata completed over 75% of his passes in that one, and Buffalo was able to utilize six different rushers to run for 212 yards on the Great Danes.
Penn State's Saturday was a different story. The Nittany Lions lost to in-state rival Temple for the first time in 74 long years. PSU also allowed Christian Hackenberg to be taken to the ground 10 times versus the Owls. James Franklin's team will then be looking for a rebound at home versus the Bulls.

Players to Watch
Joe Licata (QB, Buffalo)- Buffalo's star quarterback was 20/26 a week ago. He'll need a similar performance if Buffalo is to get past Penn State in this one.
Anthone Taylor (RB, Buffalo)- The Buffalo running back averaged over six yards a carry last Saturday. His 104 yards were good, and Taylor will looked upon once again this Saturday if UB is to pull out a victory.
Christian Hackenberg (QB, Penn State)- Hackenburg was tossed around by Temple's defense a week ago, and he struggled throughout. Ultimately, he was sacked ten times on Saturday.
Offensive Line (OL, Penn State)- The Nittany Lions' O-line was awful on Saturday. They gave up ten sacks, and a similar performance could allow Buffalo a chance to win in today's game.
