ABOUT THE BULLS:
Propelled by an explosive running attack, Buffalo trampled opponents on the way to a MAC Championship game appearance last year. Led by MAC Offensive Player of the Year, Jaret Patterson and fellow running back Kevin Marks, the Bulls averaged 287.4 rushing yards per game. They averaged 51 points per game while winning the MAC East crown, but were held to 28 points by Ball State and 17 points in the winning finale against Marshall.
While Patterson is gone and six other Bulls joined head coach Lance Leipold at Kansas, UB still drew four first place votes from media members in the preseason poll.
