When Zac Dysert connected with Nick Harwell for his 3rd touchdown reception of the afternoon with 23 seconds left in the fourth quarter, it appeared that UB had blown another opportunity at getting a MAC victory.
It appeared that the Bulls and Redhawks were poised for overtime to decide who would leave Amherst with the win.
Despite where the game appeared to be heading, nobody told Devin Campbell or Patrick Clarke.
The dynamic freshmen running back took the ensuing kickoff return 47-yards down to the Miami 35 yard line, setting up a 47-yard Patrick Clarke field goal as time expired to give the Bulls their first MAC win of the year.
The contest was back and forth throughout with both teams trading scores.
Buffalo, led by running back Branden Oliver had a great day running the ball, rushing for 215 yards on 5.5 yards per carry.
With Oliver back to normal form, the junior running back ran for 199 yards and a touchdown.
Freshman quarterback Joe Licata made his first career start for UB, passing for 127 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Licata stepped up big in the second half, throwing both of his touchdowns after the intermission, keeping the Bulls in the game.
On the receiving side of things, Alex Neutz continued to add to his great season, catching three passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.
Despite the back and forth play, UB did a good job on defense limiting the Redhawks.
Dysert was his usual self, throwing for 242 yards and three touchdowns but outside of their passing game, Miami could never get anything else working offensively.
The Redhawks only ran for 98 total yards, averaging only three yards per carry.
With the win, UB improves to 2-7 (1-4) on the year and sees the Licata era start with a victory.
The Bulls will try to carry over the momentum into next week when they take on Western Michigan.
