The Buffalo Bulls (3-6) take on the Ohio Bobcats (6-3) at home on Tuesday night. The Bulls lost 31-13 to Toledo on the road previously, and now they’ll be back home, where they’ve gone 1-3. The Bobcats are coming off a 30-16 loss to Miami, Ohio, their first home loss. These schools have been competitive recently, so we’ll see if that trend continues.
Will Buffalo pull off the home upset, or will Ohio improve to 7-3?

Ohio has an elite defense, coming in allowing the fourth-fewest total yards per game in the nation. It didn’t show last week, but prior to that, opponents had only cracked the 20-point mark once all season. The Bobcats are especially great versus the run, and Buffalo’s run game and just their offense in general, have been subpar.
The Bulls don’t have an awful defensive unit, but their opponent’s rushing stats are concerning. Thankfully, Ohio hasn’t dominated on the ground, so it might not hurt Buffalo. Both schools average just 3.7 yards per rush, and this game is pointing toward a low-scoring affair. Take the under here as it’s hit in seven of the Bobcats’ nine contests and the Bulls’ last five.
Under 44 (-110)
