Bulls Set For Thursday Night Clash With Ohio
BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo football team travels to Ohio for a nationally-televised Thursday night matchup with the Bobcats. The game will air on ESPNU.

Alex Zordich will again get the start at quarterback for the Bulls as the Youngstown, OH native returns to his home state. The freshman signal caller continues to progress as he threw for 210 yards and added a rushing score last week against Miami. He will be making the first road start of his career.
Ohio is led by quarterback Boo Jackson who has thrown for 1,302 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season. The Bobcats rank second in the MAC in rushing – averaging 176.8 yards per game.
