Bleacher Report's David Kenyon believes that Buffalo redshirt senior WR Anthony Johnson and junior QB Tyree Jackson will be one of the best quarterback-wide receiver combos in 2018.

Buffalo may not be a football powerhouse, but this was an impressive for most of 2017 and should be a powerhouse in the coming year. "The Bulls shuffled through a few quarterbacks last season due to injury, but the connection between Jackson and Johnson must be featured," Kenyon writes. "Over the last four games, Johnson caught 27 passes for 529 yards and eight touchdowns. There's a legitimate chance he'll lead the nation in receiving." Especially when you consider the lack of talent in MAC defenses, the numbers here could be very, very impressive.

Former Wisconsin receiver George Rushing is transferring to Buffalo as a graduate transfer.

Because Rushing received his degree in the spring, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound wideout will be eligible to play for the Bulls immediately in 2018. He missed all of last season with a leg injury, and caught 12 balls for 136 yards in 2016. He could be a complementary receiver to star receiver Anthony Johnson next season.

Buffalo hired UL-Lafayette strength and conditioning coach Lewis Caralla to serve in the same capacity.

Prior to coming over to the Bulls, Caralla had spent the past two seasons on staff at UL-Lafayette. He previously worked as strength and conditioning coach at North Texas (2015) and Michigan (2012-2014).

Wisconsin senior WR George Rushing will transfer as a graduate.

Rushing (6'1/180) is on track to graduate in the spring and will be eligible to play immediately with his new program come the start of the 2018 season. A left leg injury prevented him from playing during the current campaign. For his career with the Badgers, Rushing caught 18 passes for 208 yards.

Buffalo junior LB Khalil Hodge had 13 tackles, two TFL, one interception and a pass breakup in last week's win over Ohio.

Hodge has been obscenely productive this year, posting 154 tackles, two interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles. "Hodge is a dominant run defender best making plays up the field or in pursuit," Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote. "He’s a natural MLB/ILB with starting potential at the next level."

Buffalo redshirt junior WR Anthony Johnson racked up six receptions for 155 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's victory against Ohio.

Johnson, whose NFL Draft stock has been on the rise, has posted three straight games with 150 or more yards while scoring eight receiving touchdowns during the span. Overall he has an impressive 76-1,356-14 line which will turn the head of any NFL scout. He'll be a huge factor for the Bulls as they go bowling after three straight wins to close out the season.

Buffalo redshirt sophomore QB Tyree Jackson completed 19-of-30 passes for 294 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Fridday's regular-season finale win against Ohio.

The Bulls were in dire straits (3-6 overall, 1-3 conference) heading into the Bowling Green game, but they rattled off three straight wins to gain bowl eligibility. Jackson was able to return from a knee injury which knocked him out of the FAU game in September, and that was a huge part of their return to form. Buffalo will be a dangerous team heading into bowl season, as they're on quite the roll.

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.

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.

Wisconsin senior WR George Rushing (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Michigan.

It's starting to look like Rushing (6'1/180) may just miss the entire season. He's been week-to-week throughout, but has not yet made his debut.

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.

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.
Wed, Nov 8, 2017 01:05:00 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.
