Quarterback Joe Licata, pictured above as the quarterback for local Williamsville South High School, will get his first collegiate start on Saturday against Miami Ohio.

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.
