The UB Center for the Advancement of Sport congratulates our UB Bulls football team on their historic season, and the tremendous number of honors earned on their way to the MAC Championship tomorrow night in Detroit. You can watch the Bulls take on Ball State on ESPN at 7:30 PM EST TOMORROW, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18TH. If you would like to join some other Bulls fans safely, see the Zoom party invitation above.
The Bulls’ undefeated 5-0 season culminated in a first top 25 national ranking (#23), and multiple awards, including Head Coach Lance Leipold – MAC Coach of the Year, and Jaret Patterson, the MAC Offensive Player of the Year and the Vern Smith Leadership Award. The Bulls placed several players on the All-MAC First Team: Kayode Awosika (OT), Mike Novitsky (C), Malcolm Koonce (DE), James Patterson (LB) and Jaret Patterson (RB). Second Team honors went to Jake Fuzak (RT) and Antonio Nunn (WR). Five more Bulls were named to the Third Team: Zac Lefebvre (TE), Kevin Marks, Jr., Alex McNulty (K), Eddie Wilson (DT), and return specialist Ron Cook, Jr. The Bulls offensive line also was recognized as one of the top 15 in the nation. Jaret Patterson has also been mentioned in the Heisman conversation, after tying the NCAA record for touchdowns in a single game and becoming one of only four players to rush for over 400 yards in a single game.
Special shout-out to Dr. Brian Bratta, Associate Athletic Director of Sports Medicine, for his hard work in managing the Athletic Department’s COVID protocols.
Horns up, everyone! GO BULLS!!!!!
