UMass vs. Buffalo: Minutemen look for second straight win against Bulls

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

UMass (1-9) looks for its second straight win against Buffalo (3-7) on Saturday in Foxborough, MA.

UMass finds itself in unfamiliar territory as it hosts Buffalo with a chance to win its second straight game on Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA.

The Minutemen (1-9, 1-5 MAC) won their first FBS game last weekend against the Akron Zips on the back of a 266-yard, one-touchdown performance from quarterback Mike Wegzyn. Michael Cox rushed for 44 yards and Alan Williams had six catches for 86 wins as UMass topped Akron, 22-14. Blake Lucas kicked three field goals for the Minutemen in the process and Wegzyn ran for an additional touchdown.

Buffalo hasn't had much more success this season, going 3-7 (2-4) MAC heading into Saturday's game. After losing seven of eight games to start the year, the Bulls have won their last two games. Last weekend, Buffalo squeaked past Western Michigan, 29-24, thanks to big days from quarterback Joe Licata (285 yards, TD) and receiver Alex Neutz (nine catches, 140 yards, TD).

Saturday afternoon's game kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and will not be televised.
