BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Mid-American Conference made it official by declaring No. 24 Buffalo as winners of the East Division football title.

The announcement comes after the Bulls appeared to clinch the title outright once their game against Ohio last Saturday was canceled and declared a no-contest. That decision was made because the Bobcats' roster was depleted due to COVID-19. 

Ohio was the only team left with a mathematical chance to win the title before the cancelation occurred in the second-to-last week of the regular season.
