The University at Buffalo football team continues to make history, and now they control their own destiny. The Bulls head to Athens next week for a matchup with Ohio. A win over the Bobcats gives the Bulls the MAC East title, they’ll punch their tickets to Detroit in hopes for the MAC Championship, and they’ll have 10 wins, something never done before in program history.
“I think when you look back more where we were at two years ago, and where we’re at, it’s really proud of our players for the work that they put in,” said head coach Lance Leipold. “They’re staying with it, determination, the time and the sacrifice that they put in.”
The Bulls have continued to carry the chip on their shoulder mentality, even with their historic success this season.
“We’ve talked about it with them for a couple of years now,” said Leipold. “I think that kind of embraces the community in which we live in and how we go about or business to do the best we can and fight for what we earn.”
Even though the Bulls have shown their tenacity fighting through close games, Leipold knows Wednesday night will be an even bigger fight.
“Once you get into conference play and I think I’ve said it here as well, it’s how you matchup up,” said Leipold. “Different teams match up differently with one another, and games we say it every day before we take the field, you have to prepare and expect it to be a sixty minute battle.”
The Bulls travel to Athens Wednesday to take on the Bobcats.
