Redshirt freshman quarterback Joe Licata, who graduated from local Williamsville South High School, will get his first career start this Saturday as Buffalo takes on Miami Ohio (4-4, 3-1 Mid-American Conference) at UB Stadium. Licata replaces junior Alex Zordich.

The news comes just a week after Licata nearly led Buffalo to an upset over Toledo (8-1, 4-0 MAC).

Late in the third quarter, Licata stepped in for Zordich - who was "shaken up," according to head coach Jeff Quinn - and led the Bulls on a seven-play, 73-yard drive that ended in a touchdown pass. He finished with five completions on 11 attempts for 68 yards and a touchdown.

So far this season, the Bulls' scoring offense ranks 12th in the MAC through eight games with Zordich as the starter.
