Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Buffalo redshirt junior WR Anthony Johnson has seen his stock rise over the last few weeks.

Johnson is coming off a career day, hauling in seven passes for 153 yards and scoring four times. He's been one of the best players in the MAC, with 70 catches, 1,202 yards and twelve touchdowns verifying that. "Johnson is a natural pass catcher with decent size and reliable hands, Pauline says. "Obviously true measurements and testing numbers are required but Johnson’s reliability, nose for the end zone and big play ability is more than intriguing."

Buffalo redshirt sophomore Emmanuel Reed ran for 123 yards on 18 carries in a 40-24 victory over Ball State on Thursday.

Reed didn't get in the end zone, but he did set up several scores and went over the century mark for the second time in three games and fifth time in the 2017 campaign. A bulk of his yardage came on a 34-yard gain, but he kept the Bulls offense balanced in the victory over Ball State. He'll likely go over 1,000 yards next week against Ohio.
Nov 16 - 10:31 PM

Buffalo redshirt sophomore QB Tyree Jackson threw for 350 yards and four touchdowns with one interception on 16-of-28 passing in a 40-24 victory over Ball State on Thursday.

All but nine of his completions went to star wideout Anthony Johnson on the day, and all four of his touchdowns. After missing four games with injury, the sophomore QB has played well, and has thrown for seven touchdowns in his last two games. Jackson and the Bulls will look to qualify for a bowl game next week against Ohio.

Buffalo redshirt junior WR Anthony Johnson caught seven passes for 153 yards with four touchdowns in a 40-24 victory over Ball State.

Have yourself a day, Mr. Johnson. The 6-foot-2, 196-pound senior wideout has been one of the best playmakers in the MAC all season, and has now scored six touchdowns in his last two games. He scored once in the first, two times in the second, and once in the third against the woeful Ball State defense. Johnson now has 12 touchdowns on the season, and will look to add to that total next week against Ohio.
Nov 16 - 10:25 PM

Buffalo redshirt sophomore QB Tyree Jackson went 23-of-37 passing for a career-high 406 yards and three touchdown in Tuesday's 38-28 win over Bowling Green.

In so doing, this became the first time in Buffalo history that two quarterbacks have thrown for at least 400 yards in a game in the same season. The injured Drew Anderson -- who earlier this year played while Jackson was rehabbing a knee injury -- had 597 yards in the wild 7OT loss to Western Michigan.
Nov 8 - 2:07 PM

Buffalo senior WR Anthony Johnson had eight receptions for 160 yard and two touchdowns in Tuesday's 38-28 win over Bowling Green.

Johnson's latest big game leaves him with 1,048 receiving yards, the sixth 1,000-yard receiving season in Buffalo history. Johnson (6'2/196) is the fourth Bull to reach the 1,000-yard receiving milestone. He's a big reason why the Bulls still have a chance to go bowling. Now 4-6, Buffalo has games remaining at Ball State and Ohio. Win both, and the Bulls will go bowling for the first time since 2013.
Nov 8 - 1:05 PM

Buffalo freshman RB Theo Anderson had 133 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Tuesday's 38-28 win over Bowling Green.

It was Anderson's first career 100-yard game. The freshman has been used in every game since Week 3, but, playing in a backup role, he entered Tuesday with less than 200 rushing yards on the season. The Bulls amped up his workload with Emmanuel Reed putting two balls on the carpet.
Nov 8 - 12:25 PM

Buffalo redshirt sophomore RB Emmanuel Reed rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in Saturday's 21-20 loss to Akron.

Reed flipped the score from a 14-13 disadvantage to a 20-14 lead with his 10-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but Buffalo's defense proved incapable of holding the advantage. This was the 5-foot-8, 190-pounder's fourth 100-yard performance in nine games this year and his first since the end of September.
Oct 28 - 3:02 PM

Buffalo redshirt sophomore QB Tyree Jackson (knee) is warming up with the first-team in advance of Saturday's game against Akron.

The tea leaves were pointing this way all week, and Jackson's presence during pre-game warmups essentially confirms that he'll return from a four-game absence to start. Jackson's (6'7/245) been out since injuring his left knee against FAU on Sept. 23.
Oct 28 - 11:21 AM

Buffalo redshirt sophomore QB Tyree Jackson (knee) is probable to play on Saturday against Akron.

The timing couldn't be better for Buffalo after junior QB Drew Anderson (shoulder) was shut down for the rest of season after undergoing surgery. Jackson (6'7/245) injured his left knee in a win over FAU on Sept. 23. He has missed the past four contests. Assuming he's healthy, Jackson should draw the start versus the Zips.
Oct 27 - 3:48 PM

Buffalo junior QB Drew Anderson (shoulder) will miss rest of season after undergoing surgery.

Anderson suffered the injury against Northern Illinois a few weeks ago. Luckily for Buffalo, it appears that starter Tyree Jackson (knee) is close to returning from his month-long absence.
Oct 27 - 3:05 PM

Buffalo freshman QB Kyle Vantrease is likely to start on Saturday against Miami (OH).

Vantrease (6'3/232) would get the start in place of Drew Anderson (shoulder), who was starting in place of Tyree Jackson (knee). It could be a battle of backup quarterbacks, with Gus Ragland (lower body) out for the RedHawks as well on Saturday.
Oct 16 - 7:27 PM

Updating a previous item, Buffalo junior QB Drew Anderson (shoulder) was wearing a sling on his shoulder in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Northern Illinois.

Anderson was considered doubtful to return to the game, and the sling all but assures his day is done. We'll have more info on the severity of the injury either after the game or early next week.
Oct 14 - 6:18 PM

Buffalo junior QB Drew Anderson (shoulder) is doubtful to return to Saturday's game against NIU.

Anderson sustained a bruised right shoulder after taking a hard hit in the first half of Saturday's contest. Kyle Vantrese will work as signal-caller for the remainder of the contest unless Anderson makes a surprise comeback.
Oct 14 - 5:47 PM

Buffalo junior QB Drew Anderson left Saturday's game against NIU due to a shoulder injury.

Anderson sustained the injury in the first half and was subsequently replaced by Kyle Vantrese. Consider the 6-foot-5, 230-pound junior questionable to return. Buffalo is now down to their third-string quarterback, as starter Tyree Jackson is sitting this one out due to a knee injury.
