Buffalo Bulls College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction
This might be the most maddening program in college football over the last three seasons.
The 2021 team should be working in pushing for its fourth-straight MAC championship, but instead, the program is still trying for its second one ever since Turner Gill pulled it off in 2008.
Lance Leipold is a brilliant coach who turned Buffalo back around, but after getting through the rocky parts early on, finishing his six-year run with two division titles is a bit of a disappointment considering how dominant his teams turned out to be.
Now he’s off to Kansas and new head man Maurice Linguist is walking into a nice situation.
Set The Buffalo Bulls Regular Season Win Total At … 7
There might be some big losses on the offensive line and with RB Jaret Patterson done, but the defensive back seven will be good, the running game should still be great, and there’s no reason to not keep shooting for the MAC championship.
There’s no Toledo to deal with from the West – that’s a big deal this year – but the road games at Kent State, Miami University and Ball State will be a grind.
For the 37-year-old new guy who’s never been a coordinator – much less a head coach – there might be a few mistakes here and there, but Linguist is a rising star who has the team to at least come up with a winning season and get the Bulls to its fourth straight bowl appearance.
