UMass has signed up for some more MACtion.
The former member of the Mid-American Conference jointly announced on Thursday that they have agreed to a six-game football series with recent league powerhouse Buffalo.
Things will kick off on Oct. 15, 2022 when the Bulls travel to McGuirk Stadium and will alternate home venues every year from 2024 through 2028. UB Stadium plays host to the series starting on Sept. 14, 2024 and the remaining four contests will all take place in September from there on out.
The two schools played each other four times back when UMass was briefly a part of the MAC, with Buffalo holding a 3-1 edge in those games and a 7-6 mark against the Minutemen overall.
The Bulls are far from the only MAC team on UMass’ schedule either as the team tries to continue to make it as an FBS independent. The program has a home-and-home with Akron on the docket over the next two years and also has games scheduled down the road against Toledo, Eastern Michigan and Northern Illinois.
