UMass vs. Buffalo 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Jared Wickerham

The Minutemen are no longer winless, and look to add another victory against Buffalo.

The UMass Minutemen host the Buffalo Bulls in a MAC East battle at Gillette Stadium on Saturday afternoon. UMass got their first win of the year, and their first as an FBS member, when they defeated Akron last weekend. The Minutemen are looking to make it two-straight against a suddenly hot Buffalo squad.

Buffalo is looking for a third-consecutive win after starting conference play 0-4. The Bulls are led by running back Branden Oliver. He has rushed for 801 yards and five touchdowns on just 139 carries. Oliver's stats are even more impressive considering he missed four games this season, all Buffalo losses.

UMass has been within double-digits of their opponent just twice in their inaugural MAC season, the win over Akron and a three-point loss to Ohio. They have struggled mightily on offense, and are averaging just 11.2 points per contest.

The two schools have met nine times, with UMass winning five of those contests.

Game time, TV schedule: 3 p.m. ET, No TV, but streaming video available via UMass All-Access.

Spread: Buffalo favored by 11 points.
