Bulls top Broncos for 2nd straight win

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — But perhaps no Buffalo player made a bigger play than linebacker Jake Stockman, who was almost a huge goat before making perhaps the most important play of the game.

Three series after Neutz’s score, the Broncos drove into UB territory when quarterback Alex Carder ran the ball to the Buffalo 39 and was nailed by Stockman on the sideline. Stockman was assessed an unnecessary roughness penalty which brought the ball to Buffalo’s 24. 

Two plays later, Stockman forced Carder to fumble and UB’s Colby Way recovered to thwart would could have been a potentially dangerous situation.

“It was good to help the team out after I let them down,” Stockman said. “The prior call against me, and giving up 15 yards hurt, especially in that part of the game. That was not good for the team. So it happened the play came to me and I was able to make it for the guys.” 

What made the victory even more impressive is that the Bulls had two running backs go down and still persevered. 

Branden Oliver went down with an ankle injury in the middle of the second quarter and did not return after gaining 75 yards on 12 carries. Devin Campbell suffered an undisclosed injury midway through the fourth quarter and also did not return. The freshman rushed 22 times for 115 yards. 

UB rounds out its season in the next two weeks, with games at Massachusetts on Saturday and at Bowling Green on Nov. 23.
