The history of collegiate sports at the University at Buffalo began in 1894 when the football team played their inaugural season. By 1897, UB Football was 7-0 against collegiate foe. Although the entire UB athletics program was cancelled in 1904 due to a lack of financial support, personnel, and leadership, it was reinstated in 1915. All intercollegiate athletics were suspended for the duration of World War II. UB sport teams returned in 1946 and the football program continued to grow and flourish. The football program has celebrated many accomplishments over the decades. The UB Bulls won the Lambert Cup in 1958 and the Mid-American Conference in 2008. On September 4th, 1993, the Bulls joined Division I for the first time since the establishment of the three subdivisions in 1973. September 28th, 2013 marked the Bulls bowl eligibility for the third time after their 41-12 win over Connecticut. Having dropped football from its athletic programs twice, there is a gap in programs from 1905-1914; and through years 1971 to 1976.
