Game analysis: UB is guaranteed yet another losing season, thanks to its inconsistent offense, several dropped passes by UB receivers and poor play in the secondary in the Bulls 34-17 loss at Ohio.
How UB lost: At least four potential touchdown passes were dropped by UB receivers who didn’t do true freshman QB Alex Zordich any favors. But the puzzling part was the Bulls secondary where senior corners Josh Thomas and Sherrod Lott were burned for three touchdowns.
Turning Point: The Bulls pulled within 10 at 27-17 with 12:10 remaining on a 6-yard TD run by Zordich but Ohio answered with a 10-play, 71-yard touchdown drive with 5:18 left.
Player of the game: Ohio’s QB Boo Jackson turned this thing into his own personal playground while accounting for 227 yards of total offense and ran, passed and caught touchdowns in the game.
Stat of the game: UB’s receivers combined for just 84 yards.
What the loss means: UB falls to 2-7 overall and 1-5 in league play and have secured back-to-back losing seasons.
In the house: 15,112 at Peden Stadium.
He said it: “Making plays, it’s as simple as that.’’ – UB coach Jeff Quinn
