Pretty big win yesterday. We’ve got your Cincy on the Prowl recap here. But here’s what others had to say about the game.
Cincinnati’s offensive stars were the receivers. Anthony McClung had 9 receptions for 137 yards. Shaq Washington had 10 for 132. It was the first back to back 100 yard receiving outings for both. Chris Moore had 72 yards and both of the Bearcat touchdowns. Hosey Williams chipped in 13 carries for 84 yards on the ground. Cincinnati pounded Houston for 172 yards on 40 carries. It was a grind it out effort.
Houston turned the Bearcats over three times inside the Bearcats 20 and directly handed the Cougars 14 points. The Cougars had a grand total of three drives that went for longer than 32 yards and scored all of three points on them. Houston had no business making this a game, but the Bearcats made it one for them with an uncharacteristically sloppy fourth quarter. Still, win is a win, and I will take 9-2 going into the Louisville game.
It was a good, old-fashioned mud bowl. While everyone agreed that the weather was miserable, the Cincinnati Bearcats turned it to their advantage in a soggy 24-17 win over Houston here Saturday afternoon.
Brendon Kay threw for 386 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another as Cincinnati extended its winning streak to six games by holding off Houston for a 24-17 win Saturday.
For the third straight week, the Cougars faced a top-20 defense and struggled to come up with anything offensively. They were held to one offensive touchdown for the second game in a row, and the 278 yards was third lowest total of season. The running game was non-existent with a season-low 33 yards.
