Buffalo defeats UTEP 23-17

Sep 15, 2009 - 9:37 PM EL PASO, Texas(AP) -- Brandon Thermilius ran for 79 yards and a touchdown as Buffalo defeated UTEP 23-17 Saturday night.

Buffalo (1-0), of the Mid-American Conference, scored two touchdowns in the second quarter along with a safety and built a 23-7 lead. Thermilius and Jason Williams ran for touchdowns and the Bulls recorded a safety after UTEP recovered a fumble in its own end zone. Zach Maynard connected with Naaman Roosevelt for 42 yards for another TD in the third quarter.

Donald Buckram ran for 108 yards and Trevor Vittatoe threw for 233 yards for the Miners (0-1) of Conference USA. UTEP reached the Buffalo 20-yard line in the final minutes but a holding penalty followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty scuttled the drive.
