Buffalo Bulls Rebound Behind Offensive Explosion vs. Miami (OH) Redhawks





Any thought of the Buffalo Bulls being hung over from their lackluster performance against Toledo last Tuesday, were put to rest when the team stepped out onto the field for Tuesday night’s game against the winless Miami (OH) Redhawks. The Bulls, who lacked focus in the first half last week, came out of the tunnel hungry and determined to make a statement against the 0-10 RedHawks. The Bulls utilized a balanced offensive attack that ripped the Redhawks’ defense en route to the 44-7 victory.

The Bulls made it clear from the first quarter that the game plan was to wear down the Miami defensive front with the running game. Running backs Branden Oliver and Anthone Taylor ripped the Redhawks between the tackles and allowed Buffalo to control the tempo of the game. Oliver rushed for 150 yards with two touchdowns and Taylor accounted for a game high 154 yards on 17 carries (9.1 yards per carry) as the Bulls opened up a 28-0 halftime lead.

With the success of the running game, Buffalo was able to mix in the play action passing game. Quarterback Joe Licata was given time to look down field and hit open receivers over the middle of the Miami defense. Licata connected on 20-of-32 passes for 172 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Buffalo was able to hold the ball for 36:25 minutes and accumulate 517 yards of total offense. The Bulls wore down the Redhawks in the second half and averaged 5.9 rushing yards per carry as a team. The Bulls were 11-of-18 on third-down conversions and were able to work in younger players in their offensive schemes.

Buffalo moved to 8-3 on the season and 6-1 within the conference. Miami fell to 0-11 on the year.
