The All-Buffalo team played an extensive schedule prior to the Heralds game that included the Brooklyn Lakewoods, the Buffalo Oakdales (one of the last games in the team's existence), a team from Fort Niagara, the 1913–14 champion Lancaster Malleables, one of the many teams from Rochester (but not the Jeffersons), a team representing the Seneca nation, and Tonawanda N.Y. Frontiers (later in 1921 this team would play in the N.F.L. and go zero wins and one loss just like the Washington Senators of the same year and win / loss record.) (as noted in the N.F.L. Hall of Fame records) Buffalo did not lose any of those games.
On November 14, the All-Buffalo team hosted the Rochester Jeffersons and beat then soundly, 34-0. The team that played the Detroit Heralds that same day was actually the All-Buffalo Reserve team. This was the Reserve's only game of the season.
