Notes: The stakes in this contest are clear, as the victor wins the MAC’s East Division title and advances to the MAC championship game against Northern Illinois on Friday, Dec. 6 at Ford Field in Detroit. … This game is billed as the “Clash at the Ralph” and will be played at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. … BG is looking to win its first division title since it won the West Division in 2003. … The Falcons have won five of the last eight meetings of the two schools, including last year thanks to a 21-7 win at Columbus Crew Stadium. … Buffalo is led defensively by Khalil Mack, a Butkus Award finalist who has been invited to the Senior Bowl. … UB running back Brandon Oliver ranks second in the MAC with 137.5 rushing yards per game. His 14 rushing TDs also ranks second. … The Falcons lead all FBS teams in red zone defense, allowing their opponents to score just 14 times in 25 red-zone trips. BG has not allowed two of its last three opponents to even reach the red zone. … Running back Travis Greene has 1,293 rushing yards this season. He needs 121 yards to move into second and 151 yards to become BG’s all-time single-season leader.
