season, and set school season marks for rushing touchdowns (17),
overall touchdowns (17) and points (102). He also surpassed the
career mark for total touchdowns (44).
Even his backup joined the party. Matt Brown ran for 120 yards
and a score on 12 carries as the Owls (5-2, 3-1 MAC) compiled 400
yards on the ground, and owned 39:08 time of possession, never
really giving the Bulls (2-5, 1-2) an opportunity to fight

of the league, remains in first place in the MAC East Division, and
evened its home record at 2-2.
Buffalo has lost four of the last five games.
