Drew Anderson to remain QB as Tyree Jackson continues rehab

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – At least for another week, there won’t be a quarterback change for the UB football team.

Bulls Head Coach Lance Leipold told News 4 Sports’ Shannon Shepherd that Drew Anderson will remain under center as Tyree Jackson continues to rehab a knee injury.


Jackson was originally hurt at the end of the first half in the Bulls’ 34-31 win over Florida Atlantic.

In that game, Anderson came on and threw for 109 yards and what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.


Since taking over, Anderson has thrown for 848 yards and nine touchdowns — which includes a 597 yard, 7 TD performance in UB’s seven overtime 71-68 loss to Western Michigan.

The Bulls (3-3, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) host Northern Illinois at 3:30 on Saturday.
