    KALAMAZOO, Mich. Bucks Jerseys Outlet . -- Zach Terrell to Corey Davis, all day long for No. 14 Western Michigan.The Broncos prolific passing combination just overwhelmed lowly Buffalo.Terrell passed for a career-high 445 yards and four touchdowns, helping Western Michigan remain undefeated with a 38-0 victory on Saturday.Zach Terrell is the finest football player and finest man Ive ever met in my entire life, Broncos coach P.J. Fleck said. Whatever trophy lists hes on, he should win them all or its a disgrace.Davis had 13 catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns, breaking the Mid-American Conference record for career receptions. Davis also holds the MAC records for career yards receiving and touchdown catches.Davis also moved closer to the Football Bowl Subdivision career receiving record. His 4,987 yards ranks second behind Trevor Insleys 5,005.It means I throw the ball to him a lot, Terrell said. Its a tremendous testament to Corey. Hes a true professional and anybody that doubts Corey Davis is nuts because he will prove you wrong.Michael Henry added six receptions for 121 yards as the Broncos (11-0, 7-0, No. 21 CFP) stayed in contention for a major bowl bid. They need a win against Toledo next week and a victory in the MAC championship to have a chance at the Cotton Bowl.Jordan Johnson had 95 yards rushing for the Bulls (2-9, 1-6), who lost their third straight game. Grant Rohach, who filled in for injured starter Tyree Jackson, threw for 140 yards.Executions not where it should be for us to have a chance to beat a team like this, Buffalo coach Lance Leipold said.After a scoreless opening quarter, the Broncos controlled the action the rest of the way.Terrell found Davis for a 22-yard touchdown with 8:16 left in the second quarter, and then passed to Jarvion Franklin for a 20-yard touchdown with 2 minutes left in the half.The Broncos padded their lead in the third quarter on Butch Hamptons 30-yard field goal and Terrells 65-yard touchdown pass to Henry.Western Michigans defense recorded its second shutout this season. The Broncos beat Akron 41-0 on Oct. 15 for their first shutout since 2006.THE TAKEAWAYBuffalo: The Bulls continue to struggle in Leipolds second season. Buffalo has been outscored 361-179 this year, including 246-123 in conference play. The Bulls couldnt find an offensive rhythm without Jackson, who missed the game with a leg injury. Buffalo was shut out for the first time since 2011.Western Michigan: The Broncos and No. 1 Alabama are the only unbeaten teams left in the FBS. Western Michigan, which won its program-best 11th game this season, hadnt shut out two teams in the same season since 2000.POLL IMPLICATIONSWestern Michigan could move up in The Associated Press Top 25 after No. 11 Utah lost 30-28 to Oregon.TREMENDOUS TURNAROUNDAfter finishing the 2013 season 1-11, which was Flecks first in Kalamazoo, the Broncos have a chance to go 12-0 with a win over Toledo.We lost plenty a couple years ago, Terrell said. Theres no letdown because guys that have been here understand what its like to basically lose every game. We know what that feeling is like.LOPSIDED STATSThe Broncos finished with 626 yards of total offense, compared to Buffalos 268. The Bulls never advanced inside the Broncos 20-yard line.You could see the talent they have at the skill positions and the explosiveness at multiple spots on offense that make it difficult for us to slow them down, Leipold said.UP NEXTBuffalo: The Bulls finish the season next week at Bowling Green, which owns a 10-3 record against Buffalo.Western Michigan: The Broncos host Toledo on Friday with a spot in the MAC championship game on the line. Toledo leads the all-time series against Western Michigan, 42-29. Authentic Bucks Jerseys . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Womens Bucks Jerseys . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room.How do you fall so far, so fast? After filling the trophy cabinet with all the silverware last season, it looks as though Leeds might not even make the Top 8. Results in the Premier League seem to have been mirrored in the Super League and Leeds losses have looked like those of Chelsea last autumn. Whats gone wrong?A colleague has suggested that last year was the anomaly because Leeds struggled in the four seasons prior to 2015, finishing sixth, third, fifth and fifth. Perhaps they were just very luck in 2015.One thing is certain: their attack is nowhere near as good as it was in 2015. Theyve scored less than half the number of tries than they did in the opening 10 rounds of last season.Why? Finishing opportunities and accuracyWell, it isnt due to a lack of field position. Most tries in rugby league are scored when a team get close to their opponents tryline (ie inside their opponents 20-metre zone). Comparison showing tries scored in 2015 and in 2016 after round 10 This year, Leeds have spent more time inside that area but seem to have forgotten how to score.After round 10 in 2015, Leeds had 260 play-the-balls in the oppositions 20-metre zone and had scored 32 tries.Fast forward to round 10 in 2016, and Leeds have had 320 play-the-balls in the 20-metre zone but have scored only 19 tries.In 2015, many of Leeds best tries came from some brilliant offloads. They still offload the ball as much but they have not been as effective.Leeds skill level seems to be a bit below the superb standard they set last year as theyve made significantly more handling errors in 2016.The opposition also know what is coming, so when Leeds do create that second-phase play, teams are ready for them.Personnel changesPersonnel changes have obviously had an impact, but I dont think you can  blame their dip in form solely on the loss of experienced players. Jamie Peacock had the knack of getting the pass away to create space outwide That said, the absence of Kevin Sinfields goal-kicking may have cost them a victory or two this season.The Rhinos have lost five games in which they have scored the same number of tries as their opponents and their main goal-kicker, Liam Sutcliffe, has been successful in just over 60% of his goals.Zak Hardaker has just four successes from eight attempts and while Jordan Lilley has kicked well, he has spent less time on the field than the other two.Jamie Peacock did make metres for Leeds when he ran the ball, but they have other big forwards who can do that.What JP did better than his replacements was provide an accurate and well-timed pass that helped to create space out wide. Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do at hooker They managed to cover the injury to Paul Aiton at the end of last season, but a good hooker is essential to a good team and Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do. Wholesale Bucks Jerseys. Without Tom Briscoe and Ryan Hall, they dont look as scary on kick returns, which are a vital aspect of the game.Hardaker isnt playing at the level that he did 12 months ago and they now look like a team under pressure, rather than a relaxed one. They could even be trying too hard.Training ground impactThe flooding of their training ground in December has probably had a bigger impact than I first imagined as their skill last year came as a result of the time and effort that they put into passing the ball more.Without a regular pitch to practice on theyve wasted time moving from one temporary pitch to another and its shown. In a way, they have an unfair advantage over several other sides who dont have the luxury of the training base that Leeds use.It looks like it will be several weeks before they return but they cannot wait that long until the start picking up the wins. Returning star Robert Lui inspired Salford City Red Devils to a 14-10 win over fading Super League champions Leeds Rhinos. Time is nowThere are many reasons why Leeds find themselves one place off the bottom of the table, but not many games for them to do something about it.By my reckoning, they need to win nine of their next 13 games, which wont be easy as six of the next seven are against teams already in the Top 8. However, as Hull showed when Jamie Shaul scored his try on Good Friday, things can turn around very quickly in sport.If ever there was a game to kick-start 2016, its at home to a Hull side that have won their past five matches on the bounce.Can Leeds get back to winning ways against Hull FC?
