The Miami of Ohio Redhawks and Buffalo Bulls face off on Saturday in a Week 5 college football showdown at UB Stadium. In 2021 it was Miami that secured the 45-18 victory. 

Buffalo comes into this game with a 1-3 record overall but they are coming off their first win of the season in the last game. Buffalo scored 50 points against Eastern Michigan and that was enough to secure the 19-point victory. Under center for Buffalo is Cole Snyder and in the last game, he completed 20 of his 29 passes for 297 yards and two touchdowns. Mike Washington had a strong game on the ground rushing for 71 yards and two touchdowns. On the season Buffalo is averaging 29.3 points while their defense is giving up 34.3 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Miami who sits with a 2-2 record overall and they are coming off a big win in their last game. Miami of Ohio is a run-first team and in the last game they were led by Keyon Mozee and he finished with 21 carries for 171 yards. The defense was elite giving up only 14 points to Northwestern, and that was enough to secure the 17-14 victory. The two losses for the Redhawks came against Kentucky and Cincinnati. Miami is averaging 19.5 points while their defense is giving up 25.8 points per game. 

Buffalo is 1-4 against the spread in their last five conference games. Miami of Ohio is 20-9 against the spread in their last 29 conference games. The over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings between the two teams. The home team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between the two teams. 

Miami is coming off a win in their last game, but I still have some major concerns about their quarterback play. In the last game, Buffalo scored 50 points, and the Redhawks aren’t going to find enough offensive success in this game. Look for Buffalo to get a big game from Cole Snyder, and the Bulls will get the job done. Back Buffalo against the spread.
