Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Branden Oliver rushed for 216 yards and a touchdown as the Buffalo Bulls defeated the Massachusetts Minutemen, 32-3, in a Mid-American Conference matchup at UB Stadium.

Fred Lee led the Bulls in receiving with 70 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions. Buffalo moves to 3-0 in conference play for the first time in school history with the win.

With 48 seconds left in the first half, Clarke kicked in a 27-yard field goal to increase the Bulls lead to 13-0. Despite having such little time, The Minutemen managed to drive down field and set up a 42-yard field goal from Blake Lucas with seven seconds remaining in the half to put UMass on the board.

It was all Buffalo in the second half. Clarke hit a 27-yard field goal and the Bulls defense managed to tackle UMass' Wilson for a safety. In the fourth quarter, Licata found Lee for a seven-yard touchdown pass and Oliver ran in a five-yard touchdown to help the Bulls claim the commanding, 32-3 decision.
