The Buffalo Bulls have won two of the last three MAC tournaments, and as a result, you’ll find a rather lively atmosphere when attending a Bulls home game. A few years ago there wasn’t much buzz surrounding the Buffalo basketball program. However, the team’s recent uptick in fortunes has UB students and alumni coming out in full force to support their team.
Recent renovations to Alumni Arena have also made a trip to a Buffalo Bulls game a more exciting proposition. In 2011, all of the arena’s bleacher seats were replaced with chairback seating, and even more recently the Bulls added a hall of fame. The new amenities have improved the Bulls in-game experience immensely, so if you haven’t attended a UB basketball game in the last couple years then now is the time to give it another chance.
The one downside to attending a Bulls basketball game is that the area around campus is still a bit lacking. However, if you’re willing to travel a bit, you’ll find lots of great places to hang out before and after the game including Duff’s and Elmo’s.
The Bulls recent success and the renovations to Alumni Arena have elevated a Bulls basketball game from a ho-hum experience to a fun college hoops gameday that any MAC basketball fan would enjoy.
