Recap: Buffalo vs. Miami-Ohio

Buffalo, NY (Sports Network) - Patrick Clarke's 47-yard field goal as time expired lifted the Buffalo Bulls to a 27-24 win over the Miami-Ohio RedHawks in a Mid-American Conference thriller at UB Stadium.

Joe Licata threw for 127 yards and two touchdowns, while Branden Oliver paced the Bulls' ground game with 199 yards and a score to help UB (2-7, 1-4 MAC) snap a six-game slide.

Nick Harwell finished with 10 catches for 62 yards and three touchdowns for the RedHawks (4-5, 3-2), who saw their faint MAC Championship hopes slip away. Zac Dysert completed 25-of-44 passes for 242 yards to become Miami's all-time leading passer in the loss, passing Ben Roethlisberger.

After a scoreless first quarter, the teams traded field goals in the second quarter. Miami's Kaleb Patterson connected from 29 yards out, while UB's Clarke made a 49-yarder.

Oliver gave Buffalo a 10-3 lead with a five-yard touchdown run at the 9:49 mark of the third quarter, capping an eight-play, 75-yard drive.

Miami answered with a touchdown drive of its own, as Dysert tossed a 10-yard scoring strike to Harwell to make it a 10-10 game.

However, the Bulls responded just over a minute later, as Licata found Alex Neutz for a 43-yard TD pass to put UB back on top.

Dysert and Harwell hooked up for another touchdown, this time from one yard, as the RedHawks knotted the score at 17-17 with 13:55 to play in the fourth quarter.

But the seesaw battle would continue, as Buffalo regained the lead on Licata's 21-yard TD pass to Fred Lee with 5:36 remaining.

Dysert and the RedHawks answered with a 16-play, 75-yard drive, tying the game at 24 on Dysert's five-yard scoring strike to Harwell with 23 seconds remaining. The drive was kept alive by a pair of fourth-down conversions, including a 22-yard catch by Andy Cruse on 4th-and-20 one play earlier.

But the Bulls had no intentions of going to overtime, as return man Devin Campbell ran back the ensuing kickoff 47 yards to the Miami 35, setting up Clarke's game-winner two plays later.

Both teams notched 21 first downs, while Buffalo held a slight 352-340 edge in total offense and was able to capitalize on having the ball last.
