For the first time since Syracuse hosted Miami in 1979, the Ralph will be home to college football this upcoming November.
The University at Buffalo announced Wednesday afternoon that their Black Friday contest versus Bowling Green will be played at Ralph Wilson Stadium, marking the second consecutive year that the annual matchup will be played off campus.
Buffalo is hyping the game as the “Black Friday Clash at the Ralph” and is very excited about playing in the same stadium as the Bills.
“The ability to play a MAC regular season game at Ralph Wilson Stadium provides an outstanding opportunity for us to showcase our football program to a more regional audience ” said UB Director of Athletics Danny White.
White added, “The Friday after Thanksgiving is one of the best college football days of the year and this venue change will provide a new and unique collegiate experience for our program, student-athletes and our fans.”
UB coach Jeff Quinn was also very enthusiastic about the announcement.
“What a tremendous opportunity for our football program to be able to compete in an NFL Stadium right here in Western New York,” Quinn said. “Our fans are fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of this experience.”
The game will be included in the Bulls season ticket package that can be purchased for $90.
