The Buffalo Bulls will head on the road to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers this Saturday in an FBS College Football matchup. This will be the first time these two programs have faced off.
Buffalo heads into this game after storming past the Wagner Seahawks 69-7 in their week one game. QB Kyle Vantrease led the offense with an efficient 15/19 for 231 yards and a touchdown. They did most of their damage on the ground, racking up 312 yards with seven scores in the game. No one rusher had over 100 yards, but four backs had over 50. On the defensive side of the ball, they limited the Seahawks to less than 100 yards of total offense, racking up five sacks and nine tackles for loss in the game. Taylor Riggins led the way with six tackles and two sacks.
Nebraska is off to a 1-1 start after notching their first win of the season last time out, a 52-7 victory at home against the Fordham Rams. They were able to rack up over 600 yards of total offense, eclipsing the 300 mark both through the air and on the ground. Markese Stepp led the team with 101 yards rushing. Quarterback Adrian Martinez bounced back after a shaky first game, going 17/23 for 254 yards and a touchdown. Defensively they came away with three interceptions of Fordham QB Tim DeMorat. On the ground they allowed Fordham to get 4.6 yards per carry for a total of 129 yards.
Buffalo is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games, 8-2 on the money line, and the over is 8-2.
Nebraska is 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games, 3-7 on the money line, and the under is 7-2-1.
Nebraska was able to redeem themselves after a disappointing first game. However, they will have a tough matchup against the Buffalo Bulls. Despite blowing out Fordham in their last game, the Cornhuskers allowed nearly five yards per carry to a lesser team. Buffalo may not be a household name, but they have quietly been building a solid program over the last decade, and have one of the better offensive lines in the nation. Their 300 yards in week one was no fluke; look for them to press their advantage to keep this one close and cover. Give me the Bulls.
