AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — The UB football team needed a big win in Mid-American Conference play and they got one on Saturday. The Bulls topped Central Michigan 43-20 at home, picking up their second win in MAC play. They're now 4-4 overall and 2-2 in conference play.
Kyle VanTrease made the start under center after it was announced that Matt Myers would miss the rest of the season. VanTrease finished 13-of-25 for 179 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also added three rushes for 16 yards. VanTrease's biggest target of the day was Antonion Nunn. The two connected five times for 77 yards and two touchdowns.
Jaret Patterson had a monster day on the ground, rushing 28 times for 149 yards and a touchdown. Kevin Marks had a good day as well in the backfield, rushing 21 times for 37 yards and a score.
On the other side of the ball, the Bulls defense came up big on numerous occasions. The unit recorded two interceptions (including a pick-six), and forced three fumbles.
UB will be back on the road next weekend when they travel to Eastern Michigan.
