Kent, Ohio (AP) - Joe Licata and Branden Oliver accounted for all six touchdowns to lead Buffalo to a 41-21 victory over Kent State Saturday.
Buffalo (6-2, 4-0 Mid-American Conference) started slow but entered the halftime break ahead 20-7. Licata, who had 285 passing yards with two touchdowns, tossed an 8-yard scoring strike to Alex Neutz to open the scoring. The point after was blocked.
Kent State (2-7, 1-4) scored on a Trayion Durham 5-yard run early in the second quarter to take the lead 7-6.
Oliver, the all-time career rushing leader for the Bulls, scored the next four touchdowns on runs for 5, 17, 38 and 4, to up the lead to 34-7. Oliver had 185 yards on 31 carries, averaging 6 yards a carry.
Neutz, who pulled in three catches for 75 yards, and Fred Lee with 72 yards on six catches, were Licata's main targets.
With the win, UB is now Bowl eligible for just the second time as an FBS Program.
