Having played his college ball in the Mid-American conference, Miami-Ohio QB Zac Dysert, who is on the North team roster at the Senior Bowl this week, knows all about the challenging weather conditions when playing in Buffalo.
Dysert was last in Buffalo on Nov. 3rd when his Red Hawks came to play the U.B. Bulls. After a slow first half the game heated up in the third quarter. Dysert led three 70-plus yard touchdown drives, capped with TD passes by Dysert as he became his school’s all-time leading passer, surpassing Ben Roethlisberger.
“We definitely got off to a slow start,” he said. ”That’s always a tough place to play. I got sick about two days before, so I wasn’t feeling too great either. But I stuck it out and tried to stick in there with my team and we just couldn’t come back.”
Despite Dysert’s best efforts on a 25-44 passing day for 242 yards and three TDs during a windy November afternoon, U.B. won the game on a last second field goal (27-24).
Dysert is eager to show this week that despite playing at a mid-major school he’s got the talent to hang with some of the best in the college game.
“Just show them my skill set,” he said. ”Show them what I thrive in and show them that I do have some things to get better, but I’m definitely working on them. I know my weaknesses and I’m trying to improve them every day.”
