Dear UB community,
While we didn't get the result we'd all hoped for, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl allowed us to capitalize on another opportunity to showcase the University at Buffalo in front of a national audience. It was your support that helped make this happen.
Throughout this past week, we saw UB pride in full force from fans posting "horns up" photos on social media, alumni talking excitedly about their alma mater to coworkers and friends, and students wearing their UB Blue in anticipation for the big game. I can't thank you all enough for your continued support and enthusiasm.
UB athletics is committed to ensuring that our appearance in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is not simply a one-off event. We expect to compete for championships in all of our 20 sports, putting our teams and UB in the national spotlight. As I've said before, the University at Buffalo has more potential than any other athletic department in the country and I appreciate you all helping us show why that is the case during this last week of excitement.
Thank you, UB Bulls, for a fantastic season. Thank you fans and UB supporters for your efforts as we work to bring big-time college athletics to Western New York. To be sure, this is a great time to be a Bull!
