AMHERST, N.Y. -- James Starks ran 26 times for 177 yards in a 37-17 Buffalo win over Miami of Ohio Tuesday night.
Starks ran for two touchdowns, including a 62-yard score in the fourth quarter to seal the win for Buffalo (5-4, 3-2 Mid-American Conference). It was his third TD run of 50 yards or more this season.
Drew Willy completed 18-of-29 for 245 yards and two touchdowns, tying Marty Barrett for the Buffalo all-time record with his 44th career TD pass.
Buffalo struck first after Willy scored on a 1-yard plunge set up by a 36-yard completion to Roosevelt that was first ruled a touchdown.
Miami (2-7, 1-4 MAC) answered with a 39-yard Nathan Parseghian field goal, but Willy and Roosevelt connected again, this time for 34 yards and a 14-3 lead.
Belton led the Red Hawks on a 13-play, 88-yard drive, scoring on a 7-yard quarterback draw to cut the lead to 14-10.
