It's that time of year where teams start to find out who their upcoming opponents will be and UB just announced that they've got a huge game coming up.

It's not until 2028, but UB has made the announcement that they will be playing one of the biggest names in college football.  They will be taking on the Ohio State Buckeyes!

The date is set.  Put September 2, 2028, on your calendar and plan for a road trip.  Unfortunately, it won't be a home game for the Bulls as they'll be traveling to the Horseshoe to take on the Buckeyes.

It's hard to believe that it's only the second meeting between the two teams, but if you've been a UB fan for any time now, you may remember the first meeting.  That was the day that the world met standout UB linebacker, Khalil Mack.  He ended up with nine tackles, 2.5 sacks and a pick six in 2013.  The rest was history for him though.  Even though the Bulls lost 40-20, that game still gave Mack the platform that he needed to show the world the skills that he has and get picked in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

This program has come leaps and bounds from where it was when I went to school there.  The games are fun to watch and the team is actually producing and showcasing some real NFL talent.

They had a tough year with their first-year coach this year finishing 4-8 and 2-6 in the conference.  We will have to wait until September 2, 2022 to see them on the field again.
