Nevada leads series, 2-0
After dropping a decision to Albany in its opening game, the Buffalo Bulls might have preferred to get back into action quickly. The schedule, however, dictated otherwise, so UB got a bye for Week Two. The Bulls will finally hit the field again Saturday when they travel to Reno for a . . .
