BUFFALO, NY – Jaret Patterson rushed for a record 409 yards and eight touchdowns to help lead the University at Buffalo football team to a 70-41 win over Kent State at UB Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The 409 yards were a Mid-American Conference record and his eight rushing touchdowns tied an NCAA record for single game.

Buffalo rushed for a program-record 515 yards in the game. Marks added 97 yards and two rushing touchdowns. The 10 total rushing touchdowns were also a school record.
The 70 points were the most scored by a UB team in its FBS era (since 1999), topping its previous best of 68 points scored in a seven-overtime game against Western Michigan in 2017.
The Bulls improved to 4-0 with the victory.
