The Buffalo Bulls shoot for back to back conference wins when they face the Western Michigan Broncos on the road Saturday.

For those of us that follow MAC football, you know that this isn't the same Western Michigan we've seen over the last several years. Suffice to say the Broncos have been struggling on both sides of the ball and did so once again in 47-20 loss at Toledo in week six. The Rockets led in yardage 528-375 with a run heavy attack while WMU struggled on the ground with Dareyon Chance rushing for 80 yards on 25 carries with the team averaging less then 2 1/2 yards per try. The quarterback tandem of Zach Terrell and Tyler Van Tubbergen combined to complete 19-32 for 288 yards, but this game was decided in the trenches where the Broncos mustered less then 100 yards, while Toledo ran for over 300.
Seeing Buffalo as a decent sized favorite on the road is simply something I don't see, but this seems like they're in a good spot if they come close to matching their performance versus Eastern Michigan...
