On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Toledo, the Rockets were bursting in air as the first half of their matchup with the UB Bulls looked to be promising as they led 17-7. The Rockets defense was swarming and the offense was able to move the ball down the field. The Bulls looked like they had no answer for them. The UB Bulls locker room must have grabbed some snickers bars because the second half showed why the Bulls are the best team in the MAC Conference. The Bulls shattered the Toledo fans hopes and the Glass Bowl by busting the Rockets bubble outscoring them 24-0 in the second half as the Bulls are now 7-1 with a 31-17 victory over the Rockets. Tyree Jackson threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns. Jaret Patterson ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Anthony Johnson caught 4 passes for 83 yards and 2 touchdowns to go along with K.J Osborn’s 7 catches for 90 yards. The defense came up huge in the second half as they shut down the Rockets offense. The Bulls will be on a Bye this week but the Bull Run will continue as our hometown team will face Miami OH at UB Stadium on (Beggars Night) 10/30/18 at 8pm.
