Outstanding win yesterday! For the most part, the Bearcats couldn’t have put on a better offensive or defensive display against the Huskies. Here are some reactions from around the Internet.
It was a dominant win amid occasional rain, and it kept alive UC’s hopes of being a factor in the American Athletic Conference race. UC (5-2, 2-1 AAC) remains in the mix, especially after No. 8 Louisville was upset by Central Florida on Friday.
This was the dominant performance I expected to see. Probably the best game UC played this season. Not the most complete effort, mainly because of the run game and the pass defense wasn’t amazingly sharp, but it was clear from the beginning who was in control. This game was never in doubt. Cincinnati kicked their ass. I like it when Cincinnati kicks some ass. Let’s see more of it a week from Wednesday.
As fans we have been waiting for this Bearcats team to put it all together. I feel safe in saying that it happened today. Just an emphatic win for the Cats heading into the bye week and the short week at Memphis.
The sixth-year senior was the American Athletic Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week for a three-touchdown performance in a win over Temple. He had a hand in four first-half touchdowns on Saturday, helping the Bearcats (5-2, 2-1) take control on a cool, rainy afternoon.
Known for its explosive offense, Cincinnati showed that fire on the opening play of the game as Kay went deep and connected with McKay, who beat safety Obi Melifonwu for a 56-yard gain to the Huskies 20. Four plays later, Kay found Moore for an eight-yard touchdown to make it 7-0.
