BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Joe Licata threw two touchdowns to lead Buffalo to a 51-14 win over Albany (N.Y.) on Saturday in the season opener for both teams.

Licata finished with 246 yards for the Bulls. Anthone Taylor ran for 104 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

The Bulls followed an early Albany touchdown with 24 unanswered points before halftime, including a Licata TD pass to Marcus McGill and rushing touchdowns by Taylor and Jordan Johnson.
