The University at Buffalo was picked for fifth out of six in the East Division in the preseason poll for the Mid-American Conference football season, the conference announced Wednesday.

UB went 2-10 last season, the second year under coach Lance Leipold.
LEWISTON – Stanford’s Brandon Wu never stumbled or even wobbled on his march to the Porter Cup golf championship Saturday. The college junior-to-be shot a bogey-free, 6-under-par 64 on the final round to cruise to a three-shot victory. Wu finished at 11-under 269 in the 59th annual event at Niagara Falls Country Club. The 64 tied for the third-best final-round score ever by a Porter Cup winner, just a stroke behind the 63s shot by Phil Mickelson in 1990 and Vinny Giles in 1973.
LEWISTON - Gavin Hall has come oh-so-close to winning the Porter Cup. As his great amateur golf career comes to a close, it would be fitting – almost justice – if he got over the hump and claimed the title in his last chance this week. The Pittsford phenom and University of Texas star has finished in the top eight of the prestigious tournament at Niagara Falls Country Club each of his previous five appearances.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
