After a program record 10 wins and a MAC East Division title in 2018, many University at Buffalo football fans are already looking forward to the 2019 season with the hopes of defending their division title, and redemption for their loss in the MAC Championship game. On Wednesday, fans could start planning for the 2019 season after the program released its complete schedule for the upcoming year.

We knew the Bulls' non-conference schedule in advance with the team opening the 2019 season at UB Stadium against Robert Morris on August 31. Then the Bulls will head out on the road for two non-conference games against Penn State on September 7, followed by a matchup with Liberty on September 14. The non-conference schedule wraps up on September 21 when Temple comes to UB Stadium in a rematch of this past season's 36-29 thriller at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which the Bulls won.

UB opens their conference play on Saturday, September 28 when they travel to Oxford, Ohio to take on the Miami (OH) RedHawks. The next week, the Bulls return home to host the Ohio Bobcats at UB Stadium.

The Bulls will also host Central Michigan (Oct. 26), Toledo (Nov. 20) and Bowling Green (Nov. 29) this season in conference play, while heading on the road to play Akron (Oct. 19), Eastern Michigan (Nov. 2) and Kent State (Nov. 14).

The 2019 season will be the fifth season under the leadership of head coach Lance Leipold, who just recently signed a five-year contract extension with the program on February 5. Leipold helped the Bulls earn a bowl appearance at the 2018 Dollar General Bowl against Troy University, and he was named as the 2018 MAC Coach of the Year. In his four seasons at Buffalo, Leipold has led the program to a 23-27 record, and a 16-10 record over the past two seasons.

You can always hear the Bulls during the season on our sister station, ESPN 1520 with Paul Peck, Scott Wilson and Brad Riter on the call of every game.
