I am delighted to announce that our UB Bulls football team has received a bid to play in the 2013 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against San Diego State on Saturday, Dec. 21, our first bowl invitation since 2008.
This is exciting news for Bulls fans everywhere and for our entire university community. This bid is well-deserved recognition of the remarkable efforts of our football team over a standout season.
As we advance our prominence as one of the nation’s great research universities, our success in building a nationally competitive Division I athletic program is a significant element in our broader vision of institutional excellence. Under the leadership of Athletic Director Danny White, our intercollegiate athletic program is competing with steadily growing success on a national stage. This most recent bowl bid is another tangible reminder of how much we have achieved, and of our great promise for the future. Our bowl appearance provides UB with another national stage on which to showcase our academic, research and athletic excellence.
My heartiest congratulations to AD White, Coach Jeff Quinn and
his coaching staff, and to all of our players on this great
achievement. The accomplishments of our student athletes—both
on and off the field—are a source of pride and inspiration
for all of us at UB.
More details about the game schedule will be shared on www.ubbulls.com as they become available. Meanwhile, please join me in congratulating our Bulls on an outstanding season, and in cheering them on as they prepare to compete at an even greater level of excellence.
