Colgate plays in the Patriot League, an FCS conference. They do not have a ton of experience against the MAC but the did beat Buffalo back in 2003.
The Bulls are looking for their first win of the season. Both of their losses were covered though so this team might be better than expected in 2017.
There are some elite FCS programs that often put a scare in opponents but Colgate is not one of them.
Last year they finished 5-5 and are a second tier program in the Patriot.
They do have on star player in Pat Afriyie. The defensive lineman was the preseason Defensive Player of the League thanks to 24 career sacking coming into the season.
The fact that Colgate has played two tough games against good FCS competition bodes well but this group still might just get pushed around in this matchup. It is always so hard to tell.
After a couple of tight losses to begin the season Buffalo is looking for that first win. Colgate might serve it up but they are still going to have to play better, especially on offense – they have scored just 24 points in 2 games.
It will be interesting to see QB Tyree Jackson out there. He is 6’7″ and 245 which will make him bigger than most of the defensive players on the field.
He runs the ball too and should have a good day against a lighter defense.
The Bulls defense deserves full marks so far. They really limited Minnesota in the opener and even though Army rushed for more than 300 yards against them last week they gave up just 21 points.
That is just what Army does really. They should be able to control the Raiders.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Pick
There is no line here yet but I would expect something in the neighborhood of -21 for the Bulls. That sounds like a lot given how little they have scored though.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: No line currently posted. Free final score pick provided below.
Colgate has to get off to a good start in this one. If they put some doubt in the Bulls on offense then maybe they can make things interesting late.
I think Buffalo uses this game as it was intended, to build some confidence and get the offense going in a more productive fashion.
