Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Delaware State Hornets vs Buffalo Bulls
The Bulls open up their season by welcoming the Hornets to UB Stadium, it will be both teams season opener. The Hornets aren’t a great team they have only won 3 games in three years ending the season 2-9 while the Bulls will be looking to build on a 6-6 campaign.
Delaware State Hornets's Latest Performance :
The Hornets goal each year is as simple as just trying to win games. it is going to be tough for them since they are going to be on the road playing a decent Bulls team. First-year coach Rod Milstead has a lot on his plate as he begins the rebuilding process. The Hornets are back with Keenan Black as their quarterback starter after throwing for 1,169 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. Trey Gross has a high ceiling at receiver for the Hornets after catching 27 passes for 428 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman. Mike Waters gives Delaware State a potential 1,000-yard rusher after totaling 820 on 169 carries in 2016 and suffering through injuries a year ago. It is always hard for a first-year coach to come in and fix their woes immediately, the fans will have to understand that rebuilding takes time and it will benefit the team long term.
Buffalo Bulls's Latest Performance :
The Bulls are aiming for a winning season after finishing last year with a .500 record. They will get an easy opponent in their season opener as they take on the Hornets. The Bulls are a pass-heavy team and will go to that playstyle against the Hornets. They averaged over 290 yards last season only from their passing game. Leading the way at QB for the Bulls will be Tyree Jackson, the team will need him to be healthy for their offense to be successful this season. Joining him will be Jonathan Hawkins and Emmanuel Reed pace the UB rushing attack along with Jackson that will run behind three returning starters along the offensive line. On the defensive end, Anthony Johnson is back on the team after having 76 reception for 1356 yards last season. The Bulls defense will have to work on their safety as the season progresses they shouldn’t have a problem against the Hornets in their season opener.

I expect the Bulls to blowout the Hornets in their season opener, they will win in a large margin but not by 40 points. It will be a great confidence booster for the Bulls because they are looking to start the season out on the right foot. The Hornets will struggle with their new head coach as they embrace a tough road ahead of them.
