AMHERST, NY (WIVB) - If the Bulls want to go bowling for the second straight year,they'll have to start by throwing a strike against BowlingGreen. The 3-5 Bulls host the 3-5 Falcons Tuesday night atU.B. Stadium. The game will be nationally televised onESPN2.
The Bulls likely need to win their last four games to have anyhopes to play in a bowl game. A 7-5 final record would putU.B. in contention for one of the Mid-American Conference's bowlspots, or make them appealing to another bowl looking for ateam.
Repeating as the MAC East division champion seems unlikely, withdivision leader Temple sporting a 4-0 conference record.
The Bulls offense will have to be in high gear, facing a BowlingGreen team that throws the ball more than 50 times a game. The Falcons feature receiver Freddie Barnes, who's 99 catches and1054 yards lead the NCAA. His 9 TD catches are second.
The Bulls are banged up, but running back Ike Nduka should beready to go. He's run for over 100 yards in three of the lastfour games. Not even expected to play last week at WesternMichigan, Nduka tied his career high with 172 yards.
The Bulls will be without backup cornerback Joe Petit anddefensive end Jerry Housey. Backup running backs BrandonThermilus and Mario Henry are questionable with ankleinjuries.
Bulls receiver Naaman Roosevelt is just 42 yards away frombreaking Drew Haddad's UB career record for receiving yards.
