AMHERST, NY (WKBW) — After a career-high night against Miami (OH) last week, UB quarterback Kyle Vantrease is getting some recognition from the Mid-American Conference. The junior was named the MAC East offensive player of the week, marking the second straight UB Bull to earn the honor.

Vantrease set a career-high against the Redhawks with 353 yards and four touchdowns. Two of those passes were for over 75 yards [82 yards and 78 yards]. Along with his career best performance, Vantrease turned in a perfect second half with nine completions on nine attempts for 229 yards.

With an average of 292 yards a game, Vantrease currently leads the MAC in passing through the team's first two games. He's also tied for the MAC lead with his six passing touchdowns.

The Bulls (2-0) are back on the field Tuesday at 7pm when they travel to Bowling Green (0-2).
