Branden Oliver remembers feelings like this once before. He didn’t like it then and he doesn’t like it now.Oliver and UB’s running game have been held in check two games into the schedule. A unit that strives for a 2,000-yard season has produced just 196, which projects to fewer than 1,200 yards over the 12-game slate. At 78 yards a game, the Bulls rank dead last in rush o…

The team to watch this fall season? Looks like it might be the University at Buffalo volleyball team.The Bulls, who won the Cornell Invitational with a commanding three-game sweep of Bucknell, are off to their best start since 1989. Through their first six matches, UB has dropped just one game — that to Iona.Buffalo has two wins over Niagara, and victories over Temple, Ion…

How did Lou Tepper spend his 68th birthday? He watched a Baylor offense Texas two-step through his University at Buffalo defense to the tune of 70 points and a mind-blowing 781 yards of total offense.“My mother told me they’d be days like this,” Tepper said on Tuesday.But mother never had to come up with schemes to foil teams like Baylor. The Bulls’ first two opponents pro…

Toledo coach Matt Campbell talked during the preseason of lightening the load on David Fluellen, his talented senior running back out of Lockport. And the Rockets have gone easy on Fluellen, as a runner anyway, while making greater use of him as a receiver out of the backfield.Fluellen doubled his career high with 10 receptions good for 100 yards in Saturday’s 38-23 loss a…

WACO, Texas — Remember the Alamo all you want. But Waco it’s best to forget.UB strolled into an ambush of historic proportions Saturday afternoon and school records tumbled on both sides as 23rd-ranked Baylor romped to a 70-13 victory that – dare it be said – was even more one-sided than the final score might suggest.The 70 points were the most any UB team has yielded in t…

WACO, Texas — University at Buffalo senior Alex Neutz missed out on an opportunity to set the school single-game record for receiving yardage when he sat out almost the entire second half of Saturday’s lopsided loss at Baylor.The record appeared at hand when Neutz piled up 197 yards on six first-half catches. However, it appeared he played only the first series after inter…

Bottom line: Call it “Gone in 60 Seconds.” The Bears had the ball less than 10 minutes in the first half – and scored 56 points with only one defensive touchdown. For UB, it was like trying to guard the Jamaican sprint team.Turning Point: When Art Briles left Houston to coach Bears and turned this downtrodden program into an offensive juggernaut.Player of the Game: Heisman…

WACO, Texas — If you thought UB football went through some lean times over the last decade consider the plight of the Baylor Bears.Between 2002 and 2009 Baylor produced no winning football seasons, or one fewer than UB, which only returned to Division I in 1999. In that span the Bears endured four 1-7 Big 12 Conference records, or one more than the Bulls suffered through i…

1. He’s a Bear. Set aside for a moment Baylor’s high-powered passing game. The most explosive player on the roster lines up in the backfield. His name is Lache (pronounced “Lake”) Seastrunk, below, and minimizing the damage he inflicts is paramount for a UB defense that gave up two long touchdown runs last week to Ohio State’s Jordan Hall. Seastrunk transferred back home f…
