UB-Miami Game Analysis

Miami 41, UB 13

How Miami Won:  Think of the RedHawks passing game like a motion offense in basketball. The defense is most vulnerable at an area it has just defended. Miami loves to slip receivers behind the first receiver through and Bulls – although they knew it was coming – failed to adapt. Miami front four also scored a decisive victory over UB offensive line, halting Bo Oliver (47 yards) and pressuring Chazz Anderson as game wore on.

Turning Point: Bulls were outscored 14-0 the remainder of the first half after Peter Fardon missed another extra point. Coincidence?

Player of the Game: Miami QB Zac Dysert was surgical in finding his receivers and wasn’t hurried often. He completed his first 11 and finished 20 of 25 for 313 yards and five TDs. And he’ll be back. He’s only a junior.

 Stat of the Game: UB went 5 for 5 on third down in the first quarter and 1 of 11 thereafter.

 Stat of the Game II: Miami totaled three sacks and nine tackles for losses.

 He Said It: “”Very disappointing. Embarrassing. It’s unacceptable.”” – UB coach Jeff Quinn.

 In the House: There were 16,131 on hand for Homecoming on a picturesque autumn afternoon in the Heartland.

 Next Up: UB has a free week before heading to greatly improved Eastern Michigan for their final road game of the season. It will not, Quinn said, be a week off.
