UB quarterback Drew Anderson to transfer to Murray State

University at Buffalo quarterback Drew Anderson has decided to finish his college football career elsewhere.

Anderson announced Friday on Twitter that he was transferring to Murray State and will play next season as a graduate student after earning his undergraduate degree in business administration at UB. A school spokesman confirmed Anderson's departure.

Anderson's UB career is best known for his performance in a seven-overtime 71-68 victory against Western Michigan. He threw for a Mid-American Conference record 597 yards and tied a conference record with seven passing touchdowns.

Anderson injured a shoulder in the next game and did not play again, although his initial opportunity came after Tyree Jackson was injured and Jackson was ready to return. Jackson started the rest of the season.

Anderson appeared in four games and had 10 touchdowns and one interception with a 62.3 percent completion rate.

He played two seasons at UB after transferring from Diablo Valley College, where he threw for 3,459 yards and 33 touchdowns in one season.
