BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Matt Myers and the Bulls struggled on the road in the conference opener, turning the ball over four times in a 34-20 loss to Miami Ohio on Saturday.
With the loss Buffalo dips to 2-3 (0-1 MAC).
Offensively, UB was led by running back Jaret Patterson who ran for 183 yards and a touchdown. Fellow running back Kevin Marks also surpassed the century mark on the ground, rushing for 101 yards — which included a 39-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

After Miami pulled within 7-3 with a 53-yard field goal in the second, Patterson raced 82-yards to push Buffalo’s lead back out to 14-3.
It would be all RedHawks from there as they would score 31-unanswered points, highlighted by Mike Brown’s second interception of the game, which he returned 25-yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
Myers would finish 4-for-16 with 59 yards passing before being replaced by Kyle Vantrease near the end of the third quarter.
