Prediction:

Buffalo has a couple pretty good wins this season, but is running into a Bonnies squad that has some confidence going after three straight wins against subpar competition. The hosts will get a boost from their fans as they’d love nothing more than to see their school knock off a ranked opponent. I’m going to take the hosts here as Buffalo is playing a team that has won their last four inside the friendly confines of the Reilly Center.
