After putting up nearly 300 yards of total offense and three touchdowns to guide the Cincinnati Bearcats to a win over the Temple Owls on Friday night, quarterback Brendon Kay was named the American Athletic Conference player of the week this morning.

It’s pretty clear after Eddie Gran simplified the offense that Kay looked remarkably more comfortable in the pocket, responding with Kay-like numbers in the box score. It was a great night for Kay who also completed 84% of his passes and didn’t throw an interception, an issue plagued him against Miami (OH) and cost the Bearcats the game against South Florida. Like I mentioned in the linked post, hopefully we see more performances like these going forward.
