BUFFALO (CBSMiami/AP) — One week after a big win over Bethune-Cookman, Florida Atlantaic came up just short in western New York.
Drew Anderson threw his first career-touchdown pass for Buffalo, a 20-yarder to Anthony Johnson with 2:37 to play, and the Bulls held on to beat FAU 34-31 on Saturday night.
Anderson, a JC transfer, had one pass attempt last season and entered the game after halftime after an injury to Tyree Jackson. Jackson ran for two scores in the first quarter, and led a 16-play drive capped by Adam Mitcheson’s 23-yard field goal as time expired in the first half that tied the game 17-17.
Anderson’s TD pass stretched Buffalo’s lead to 34-24.
Jason Driskel completed a 23-yard pass to Kamrin Solomon before Devin Singletary ran into the end zone from a yard out to cut the FAU (1-3) deficit to 34-31 with 1:13 to play.
Singletary ran for 156 yards and three touchdowns, including a 34-yarder in the second quarter.
