Plus they pretty well controlled (the two horrible calls notwithstanding) an Ohio team that started the year with high MAC hopes, was playing good football, and had beaten very solid North Texas and Marshall teams earlier. And that Branden Oliver looks like a keeper.

On a side note, it was interesting to see two Buffalo teams benefit from bad officiating...on the same night!
I thought the only bad call was the safety, but that didn't really have any effect on the outcome anyway. Buffalo D didn't allow Ohio much of anything. Oliver outgained the team all by himself. What was the other call you're referring to?

Oh, and Oliver is a senior so he's only got a few more games and he's done. He's now 5th in the nation in rushing yards. A couple weeks ago he broke Starks' record for career rushing yards at UB. I think he gets drafted somewhere. Not early, but somewhere probably on day 2. Neutz should get signed by someone as an undrafted FA. He's got excellent size, great hands, and despite not having great speed, seems to always be open.
