Buffalo routs UMass 32-3 for fifth straight win

Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Branden Oliver ran for 216 yards and a touchdown as Buffalo routed UMass 32-3 for its fifth straight win.

Oliver broke the school's record for career rushing yards, surpassing the previous mark set by James Starks. Oliver now has 3,203 career yards.

Buffalo (5-2, 3-0 Mid-American) scored twice on defense, the first coming on a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown by Khalil Mack in the second quarter. Buffalo also scored on a safety late in the third to extend its lead to 18-3. Buffalo then added two touchdowns in the fourth, scoring on a 7-yard pass from Joe Licata to Fred Lee and a 5-yard run by Oliver.

With a shutout victory last week at Western Michigan, the Bulls have now allowed just three points in their past two games.

A.J. Doyle went just 14-for-28 for 162 yards passing and an interception for UMass (1-6, 1-2).
