On Saturday, the Buffalo Bulls will attempt to move to 2-0 when they face the Army Black Knights, who will be playing their first game of the season.
Buffalo had a strong offensive game against the Duquesne last weekend and were able to hold on a a 38-28 win. The Bulls put up 472 total yards and were able to hold Duquesne to just 373, including only 51 yards on the ground. Buffalo converted 11 of their 20 third down attempts in the win.
The Bulls were led by quarterback Joe Licata, who completed 25 of his 26 pass attempts for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Junior running back Anthone Taylor had 30 carries in the game for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Ron Willoughby caught 10 passes for 132 yards and two scores.
Army finished their 2013 season with a disappointing 3-9 record after losing to many of the teams that they are used to beating. Their three wins came against Morgan State, Louisiana Tech and Eastern Michigan, which were the three worst teams on their schedule.
One reason why the Black Knights can be optimistic that they will improve this year is that they have 17 starters returning. They will rely heavily on running backs Terry Baggett, who rushed for 1,113 yards in 2013, and Larry Dixon, who had 699 yards as Baggett's backup.
