Bo Oliver sat out practice again Wednesday and would have to be considered doubtful at best for Saturday's game at UConn. Brandon Murie received most of the reps at the position Wednesday, as was the case Tuesday, and figures to be the primary back against the Huskies. The Bulls remain mum on specifics regarding Oliver's leg injury but there's no sense rushing him back for a non-conference game, especially with road tilts looming at MAC powers Ohio and Northern Illinois. The betting line out of Vegas opened with UB an 18-point underdog, a spread that seemed to reflect Oliver missing the game.
