Buffalo gets another test as they host Nevada later today.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

A week after dismantling Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton, the Buffalo Bulls are back at it when they host the Mountain West's Nevada Wolf Pack this afternoon.

The Bulls were underdogs on the road when they traveled into South Florida to play the struggling Owls a week ago, but came away with an impressive 33-15 road win, that involved Buffalo's defense holding down Jason Driskel and the FAU passing game. Driskel was just 26-for-55 passing on the day, with the UB defense forcing pressure and intercepting the quarterback once. Overall, UB finished with two picks, as FAU's backup quarterback fired a pick on his only pass attempt of the game. Joe Licata struggled on the day, finishing 10-for-20 for a touch over 100 yards on the day.

Nevada hung with Texas A&M a week ago, only losing 44-27 at Kyle Field. The Wolf Pack were able to keep the game inside two scores well into the third quarter, with the halftime score only favoring the Aggies by 14. Quarterback Tyler Stewart completed over 55 percent of his passes, finishing 16-29 for 206 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. James Butler also did well at running back, going for 107 yards on 17 carries for one touchdown.

This is the second ever meeting between Nevada and Buffalo, with the first one occurring in 2004, when the Wolfpack defeated the Bulls 38-13 in Reno.

Players to Watch

Hassan Henderson (WR, Nevada)- Henderson was Nevada's leading receiver versus the Aggies, as he caught five passes for 69 yards with a touchdown as well.

James Butler (RB, Nevada)- Butler was the only Wolf Pack back to get over 100 yards on the day. He would finish with 107 yards on just 17 carries.

Tyler Stewart (QB, Nevada)- Stewart struggled at times versus A&M, but had a decent day overall, throwing for over 200 yards and two touchdowns on just 16 completions. He'll need another good performance, sans the one pick if Nevada is to beat Buffalo.

Joe Licata (QB, Buffalo)- When Licata is good, Buffalo has been good. Although he struggled last week at times, he was able do just enough and manage the Buffalo offense to a excellent output of 33 points.

Anthone Taylor (RB, Buffalo)- Taylor was the only Buffalo back to reach 100 yards in their 33-15 win. He has put out several good performances this season, and will need another one if Buffalo is going to grab the victory today.

Buffalo defense- The Bulls' defense held FAU to their lowest output of the season, as the Owls scored just 15 points, and Driskel had a miserable day under center. They may need another great performance to keep a Nevada team who scored 27 points last week at Kyle Field off the board.
