The Buffalo Bulls are playing their best ball of the season with 3 straight wins and the defense finally showed signs of life last week. The Massachusetts Minutemen make a case as the worst team in the country, and they’re not a team I’m thrilled to back regardless of opponent. UMass is 129th in total offense, 130th in scoring offense, 105th in run defense and 104th in scoring defense. It’s ugly, folks. Give me Buffalo and the chalk.
