BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Anthone Taylor had 36 carries for 222 yards and scored three second-half touchdowns, all career-highs, to spark Buffalo past Miami (Ohio) 35-27 in the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams on Saturday.
Trailing 21-14 in the third quarter, the Bulls (3-2, 1-0) leaned on Taylor, who scored on runs of 13 and 3 yards to push Buffalo ahead. His 1-yard touchdown made it 32-27 with 11:19 remaining.
Buffalo forced Miami (0-5, 0-1) to a three-and-out on the next series, which later set up Patrick Clarke's 37-yard field goal.
Miami's final two possessions ended in a failed fourth-down conversion and a three-and-out.
