BUFFALO, NY – Branden Oliver rushed for a season-high 216 yards and broke the school record for career rushing yards to help the University at Buffalo football team to a 32-3 win over Massachusetts at UB Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Oliver has now rushed for 3,203 yards, surpassing James Starks' previous mark of 3,140.
Although the day belonged to Oliver, it was UB's defense that put on another dominant display. The Bulls held the Minutemen to 85 yards rushing, had three sacks, 11 tackles for loss and forced three turnovers, including a Khalil Mack interception return for a touchdown for the game's first touchdown.
"It was a battle – we knew the team that was less affected by the external factors would come off that field victorious and I thought our kids really responded and stayed in the game," Quinn said. "It was a solid effort and a great feeling for me and the staff to come out this evening with a victory."
The Bulls improved to 5-2 overall and 3-0 in the Mid-American Conference. The five-game winning streak is UB's longest since the 2008 season. Buffalo will next play at Kent State next Saturday.
UB is home against OHIO on election night 11/5 for a 8pm kick off.
