UB-Western Michigan game thread

Western Michigan 34, UB 31, final: Western Michigan's John Potter kicked a 28-yard field goal in overtime to give the Broncos a 34-31 win over the Bulls. UB's John Rachuna missed a 43-yard field goal in the extra session, just minutes after A.J. Principe sent the game into OT with a 28-yarder. 

UB 31, Western Michigan 31, overtime: The Bulls, down 17-7 at the half, rallied in the second half and sent the game into overtime on a 28-yard field goal by A.J. Principe with three seconds left. Western Michigan called two time outs in an attempt to ice Principe.   

Western Michigan 24, UB 21, end of third quarter: After a lackluster first half, the Bulls are in position to make this one an exciting finish. The Bulls put together two scoring drives in the third, with the second coming on sensational diving catch in the end zone by Brett Hamlin on a 3rd and 14. The Bulls are driving to start the fourth and have the ball on the Broncos 47. Cornerback Kendric Hawkins (internal injury) is likely out for the game leaving UB with just three healthy corners.

Western Michigan 17, UB 7, halftime: Turnovers, which hindered the Bulls during their four-game losing streak, have come back to bite UB once again. Both miscues were interceptions by Zach Maynard. The first came on a 4th and goal from the Broncos 1 with a pick in the end zone and the second came just before halftime that was returned deep into UB territory. But the Bulls avoided further damage because Western Michigan didn't score off either turnover. UB gets the ball to start the second half. On the injury front, Willie Mosley (leg), Josh Thomas (concussion) and Joe Petit (concussion) are out for the remainder of the game, while Mario Henry (ankle) is questionable.

Western Michigan 14, UB 7, end of first quarter: Tim Hiller is pretty much having his way with the Bulls with 10 of 12 passing for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns. UB scored its touchdown off a an 11-yard run by Ike Nduka which was set up by a fumble recovery by Scott Pettigrew.
