Scouting Stony Brook
2010 Record: 6-5 (5-1 Big South)
Last Week: 31-24 (OT) Loss to UTEP
Three Stony Brook Players to Watch:
CB Donald Porter: It is apparent that Porter is a ball hawk after last week's matchup, where he snatched two interceptions against UTEP. He also showed the ability to turn those turnovers into points when he returned one of those picks for a touchdown. Look for the senior cornerback to be a major threat to the Bulls aerial attack.
RB Miguel Maysonet: The preseason All-Big South running back rushed for 103 yards on 18 carries against a stout UTEP defense. The Bulls' defense gave up 201 yards and three touchdowns to the Pittsburgh ground game, and it will need to improve if it wants to contain Maysonet.
DB Dominic Reyes: The standout junior recovered a fumble and led the team in tackles against UTEP. His performance wasn't just a flash in a bottle. Reyes led defensive backs in the Big South in tackles last season, and he seems to be improving.
Prediction: Stony Brook doesn't look like an impressive team on paper, but its near-victory over UTEP suggests otherwise. Senior quarterback Chazz Anderson impressed last weekend with his 32-for-49, 276-yard performance. If he can get the Bulls' offense going early and minimize mistakes, Buffalo will find itself in the win column.
