The University at Buffalo football team is a six-point favorite in Saturday's game against Rutgers, but that isn’t important to the Bulls. Neither is the fact that Rutgers has given up an average of 53.5 points in its last two games: 52 to perennial power Ohio State and 55 to Big 12-doormat-turned-upstart Kansas. What matters to the Bulls is that they aim for a 4-0 r…
