The Buffalo Bulls head out on the road to take the field with the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks.
Buffalo had their shot at taking over the top spot in the MAC East with a win at Toledo in week 12 but it was never to be with the Bulls falling 51-41. UB fell behind 31-0 at the half as their stingy defense wasn't so stingy and their offense didn't come to life until much too late. The Bulls picked up over 600 yards with most coming late with the potent rushing attack not as explosive as we expected. Branden Oliver gained 102 yards on 24 totes and a touchdown. The Bulls didn't really have the time to run given the score and leaned on Joe Licata and the passing game to find the end zone. Licata completed 36-58 for 497 yards and four TD's with Alex Neutz and Fred Lee catching eight balls each for 278 yards and three scores. The story of the game was Toledo racking up 551 yards in any way they chose.

Miami (Ohio) headed in to week 12 still in search of their first win and many thought that Kent State was a winnable contest. However when the final gun sounded the Golden Flashes were the team celebrating a 24-6 decision. The RedHawks trailed 14-6 at the half but never threatened there after with the offense continuing to struggle with only 176 yards and ten first downs. Austin Gearing was the only real source of offense with 81 yards on 12 carries while going 2-5 for 19 yards through the air with an interception. Drew Kummer didn't fare much better with the pass, completing 3-9 for 45 yards. The Miami defense wasn't bad with Kent State totaling 447 yards but there was no room for error with the offense unable to find the end zone.
This one comes down to this; Buffalo wins and then faces Bowling Green to decide the MAC East. Of course the big spread is a concern so based on potential I'll back the visitors...
