Bulls - Buffalo's sports teams were known as the Buffalo Bison until the 1930s, at which point they changed their name to the Bulls to avoid confusion with several professional sports teams of the same name. However, in 1960, the Buffalo Bills began play in the American Football League. Their similar names would lead to decades of brand confusion. In 1997, Buffalo's women's teams changed their names to the Bulls from the Buffalo Royals.
