Buffalo bowl matchups?
FAU vs Buffalo in Boca Raton bowl.

As an FAU fan id rather play a MAC team we have a history with than a AAC team that noone gives a crap about with you guys doing great this year I wonder who you guys would want to play.

I cant imagine Buffalo fans would rather go to Mobile or Montgomery than Boca Raton and I cant imagine FAU fans would rather play W Michigan or Ohio than a team we have history with.

RE: Buffalo bowl matchups?
all bowl talk at this point is highly speculative. most likely every MAC bowl team will play a low profile opponent in a low profile bowl. a couple of these will be in nice tourist locales. The Mobile Bowl usually gets a top MAC team whether that's the game they want. Every other year a lesser MAC bowl team fills a backup bowl agreement and gets a 6-6 type P5 team somewhere. The only way Buffalo upgrades to an ideal type bowl matchup (they won't get the access) is if they win out. Then, you might see them traded into a slightly better bowl matchup.

The MAC is not going to fare well this bowl season from what I've seen during the first seven weeks of the regular season. We have zero good teams, some average teams, and the rest are bad.

RE: Buffalo bowl matchups?
I don’t know about that, emu beat Purdue, and Akron knocked off a good Northwestern team. I think we have multiple teams who are capable of beating lower tier P5s this year. Just need to get to 7 wins since MAC gets left out with 6 now.

RE: Buffalo bowl matchups?
The MAC I'm sure will have guys heal up for bowl games and since its largely the same group of MAC schools ending up bowl eligible every year might fare better than expected in the bowls.

I will say the league as a whole isn't any tougher than the SBC or CUSA this year after being above them since the inception of the CFP.

Buffalo may get shopped around to a higher tier bowl game if they can finish with 2 or fewer losses.

Ohio may be in the Boca if they can win 7 for the simple reason they've never played there before.

ohio has a good band and sometimes travels well so i think they'd be a priority choice. buffalo if they have a monster MAC title breakout year might be a good backup to the pinstripe or military.

RE: Buffalo bowl matchups?
I think Buffalo will be a fairly attractive team in any Bowl. It's been a few years for the Bulls and the UB fans and alumni are really hungry to get to a Bowl game. They were left out last season and people are ready. The fans have shown a ton of support this season.

For the record, Football Gods, it was not a UB fan who started this thread. UB fans just want to beat Toledo on Saturday.

RE: Buffalo bowl matchups?
UB in Detroit will punch my ticket to cheer on the Bulls. Beating another BIG10 team would be an awesome resume for UB. Let the conference get drubbed. EMU and UB pull off wins. I'll take that. Toledo in Texas against an AAC team would be fun. Rockets and Bearcats. Make it happen.

More than likely we draw this though:
Boise State vs EMU Potato Bowl ... Close loss
UB vs App State DG bowl ... Blow out loss
NIU vs stAte Camelia bowl ... Low scoring loss
Toledo vs FAU Bahamas .... High scoring loss
WMU vs La Tech Boca Raton ... Loss
Miami vs. Virginia Detroit Lions ... Loss
Ohio vs Tulane Frisco ... Loss

Why would Ohio lose to Tulane? Did you miss the clinic we put on against UAB last year?

Also the two previous bowls against App and Troy were well contested, close losses against tough G5 teams.

We haven't under performed in a bowl game since 2010. Since then Ohio is 3-3 in bowls with close losses to Troy and App. In 2013 we were in it until the 4th as a 7-5 MAC team in a bowl against an ECU team heavily favored.

FAU is 3-3. Problems at QB and on Defense.

And that ODU team beat VT. I'm not sure we would keep them under 45.

We have them this week. Should be a good game if Thomson continues to improve. Our run game gas finally opened up and our defense seems to be clicking on all cylinders. We’ll see.

Game was close until Tech's QB Josh Jackson broke his fibula.

Just remember FAU is a deceiving 3-3

Their 3 losses were to Oklahoma, UCF and Middle Tennessee (by 1 point).

IMHO If FAU beats marshall saturday they will be bowl eligible by the first week of november and will probably finish 8-4 or 9-3. If FAU loses to marshall they will probably finish 7-5.

If Louisiana Tech finishes 7-5 or 8-4 someone will want them for New Orleans bowl or independence bowl.
