UB Bulls are down, but certainly not out

09/27/15 12:02am | By Jordan Grossman

A 3-1 start for the Bulls would have been a feel-good story for a historically losing program with a new inspiring head coach. But with an ill-fated throw – and tip – with less than two minutes remaining, it all simply dissolved into another .500 start for the Bulls (2-2).


UB football recap: Bulls fall to Nevada

Turnovers cost UB Bulls in loss to Nevada

09/26/15 11:13pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

The football team (2-2) fell to Nevada (2-2) 24-21 Saturday at UB Stadium in the Bulls' final game before Mid-American Conference play. 

Head coach Lance Leipold had one word to describe the loss.

“Turnovers,” Leipold said. “Ultimately, turnovers and bad penalties put us into that position. We put ourselves into tough positions for us to overcome. Long drives on third and fourth down ... we had momentum swing back our way, but we couldn’t put it together.”


UB Bulls should be beware of the unknown

The Bulls (2-1) looked good against Florida Atlantic. You could even say they looked great. Despite the offensive inconsistencies, the Bulls put together a solid defensive performance – one that got nearly every player into the mix. The Bulls won’t continue to play like that for the rest of the season, but it was good to see the defensive line hold the Owl run game and watch some touted, questionable and unheralded playmakers make plays.


UB Bulls vs. Nevada: Who has the edge?

09/24/15 11:49pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

The football team (2-1) recovered after a loss to Penn State (2-1) to defeat Florida Atlantic (0-3) 33-15, with 23 points coming off of defensive scores. Now, the Bulls head back home to face Nevada (1-2) from the Mountain West Conference after two weeks of away games. Can the Bulls pull out the victory at home and move to 3-1 before heading into Mid-American Conference play?


Saturday’s Bulls game against Nevada will reunite former UB running back Steven King with his former players

09/24/15 11:47pm | By Jordan Grossman

There are three Nevada coaches that will make a return to UB this weekend, but none of them probably expect a grand welcome at UB Stadium. Nevada head coach Brian Polian, assistant coach Jim Hofher and graduate assistant Steven King all either coached or played for the Buffalo football team during the early to mid-2000’s, but they’ve never coached this current group of Bulls players.


Creating more turnovers could propel UB football to a very successful season

09/22/15 10:23pm | By QUENTIN HAYNES

For the Buffalo football team, I was interested in one area of regression: the turnover margin. The Bulls had just two interceptions all of last season – which seemed unfathomable to me. There are teams in both pro and college that pass the ball more than 50 percent of the time. There were six quarterbacks in college football who threw more than 500 passes last season and 41 threw more than 400 times.


UB's Water Polo Club treads way into Collegiate Water Polo Association

The UB Water Polo club hosted its first tournament as a member of the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) on Saturday and Sunday. The team went 1-3 in matches against Colgate, Syracuse, Cornell and Hamilton in the deep end of Alumni Arena’s Olympic-sized pool. This was the first of many matches the club will compete in as the season extends into the winter.


UB cornerback Boise Ross is ‘all gas, no break’

09/20/15 12:55pm | By Jordan Grossman

He shined through the first two games of 2015. In the matchups against Albany and Penn State to begin the season, Ross totaled nine tackles, three pass breakups and an interception. But this Saturday’s game against Florida Atlantic had to have been his most impressive performance to date.


UB Bulls vs. Florida Atlantic: Who has the edge?

09/18/15 1:57am | By Jordan Grossman

Of course, there were issues, but overall, it was a successful game. The question now is will the personnel repeat its successful ways against a comparable opponent in Florida Atlantic (0-2) this Saturday on the road?

The Spectrum decided which team has the edge at each position.
