Buffalo Bulls – NCAAF History

Onset of the Buffalo Bulls

The Buffalo Bulls are a Division I FBS Football team based in Buffalo, New York. Founded in 1894, Buffalo has an overall record of 395–536–28. They were originally called the Bisons until 1931, when the university decided to change the name to Bulls to avoid confusion with pro teams in the area that had the same name. The program ceased operations at different times in its history, once due to World War II, and another in 1970, when the student body voted to stop having their fees fund the program.

From a Racism Miss-Out, to Victory

Despite limited success during their history, the Buffalo Bulls stats were strong during the late 1950s and 1960s, under Head Coach Dick Offenhamer. In 1958, Buffalo was invited to the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando to take on Florida State, but eventually declined to play because two of their African-American players were asked by the bowl game committee not to play. As a result, the Bulls missed out on the game, and didn’t reach another college bowl game until exactly 50 years later, playing in the 2008 International Bowl versus UConn Huskies led by a Black Head Coach in Turner Gill. Buffalo is 2-3 overall in bowl games, with victories in 2019 and 2020. The year 2008 was a banner year for the program, winning its first Mid-American Conference division crown and championship title under the aforementioned Coach Gill.
