Buffalo moved one step closer to playing in the MAC Championship by winning their seventh straight football game, the longest streak the school has had in 55 years with a solid 30-3 victory over Ohio on Tuesday night.
Running back Branden Oliver had a big game, rushing for 249 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries, but it wasn't just a one man show as the offense gained over 400 yards and the team improved to 7-2 on the year and 5-0 in the MAC.
The Bobcats entered the college football contest needing a win to keep their conference title hopes alive, but Ohio struggled to move the ball all night against a strong Bulls defense and managed just one field goal and 233 yards on offense.
Bulls quarterback Joe Licata had a solid game, completing 13 of 22 passes for 169 yards and two touchdown passes, both to Alex Neutz to help in the victory.
Buffalo still has three games left on the 2013 schedule, including next weeks contest at Toledo, who has just one loss in conference play, but the Bulls have their destiny in their own hands and with three more wins, this squad will play the winner of the West and move onto a bowl game, a goal made by every college football team before the start of the year.
