Buffalo Bulls Season Prediction, What Will Happen

Here’s the good way to look at the 4-8 clunker of a 2021 season. It was really, really close to being a whole lot better.

There was no excuse to collapse defensively against Bowling Green and Miami University as part of the four-game loss to close out the year, but four of the eight losses could’ve gone either way. Now that head coach Maurice Linguist has settled in, a few more of those 50/50 games should go to UB.

However, there’s so much work to do.

If the new transfers and young parts don’t rise up, this could be another rough run. Combine that with a schedule that doesn’t allow Buffalo to ever get settled, and it’ll be a fight.

The Bulls have to beat Holy Cross and take care of UMass on the road. Do that, win the home game against Akron, and take out one of the big home games in conference, and there should be a base of four wins – that’s the floor.

Getting to six and a bowl appearance, though, will take a special group of upsets. This won’t be a rise back up into MAC Championship status, but the Bulls should at least take a step forward.
