Central Michigan 20, UB 14 / How the game was lost

Bottom Line: The Chippewas held UB to 38 rushing yards and kept Anthone Taylor to a 1.8-yard average on 14 carries. With its attack utterly one-dimensional, the Bulls managed just two scores.

Turning Point: Central drove 98 yards in 16 plays to the decisive touchdown with 8:08 left in the game.

Play of the Game: The key play on the winning drive was a 10-yard pass over the middle to the UB 22 on a fourth-and-3 situation. UB linebacker Nick Gilbo almost had a sack, but QB Cooper Rush barely got the pass off before Gilbo hit him.

Player of the Game: Central receiver Titus Davis had six catches for 100 yards and the winning score, a 7-yard pass from Rush.

Unsung: Central middle linebacker Justin Cherocci made a team-high nine tackles and was effective blitzing all game.

In the House: The paid attendance was 18,052.

Next Up: The Bulls will visit Ohio on Nov. 5. Ohio (4-5) lost at Western Michigan Saturday.
