Check out a handful of highlights from a productive performance in the Spring Game today including Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Emory Jones throwing a couple of touchdowns!

Jones connected with a pair of junior tight ends as Payten Singletary grabbed a 16-yard reception to get the scoring started, while Michael McCalmont brought in a touchdown later on.

Despite still recovering from a broken foot in November, sixth-year quarterback Ben Bryant led multiple scoring drives as sophomore running back Victor Dawson slipped into the end zone.

Bearcats sophomore quarterback Brady Lichtenberg continued to display his impressive accuracy with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Winton Woods wide receiver product Jiair Thomas.

It’s difficult to know which quarterback will eventually earn the starting job but Jones should be considered the favorite going forward as Bryant and Lichtenberg look to gain ground.

After starting spring practice nearly six weeks ago, Scott Satterfield’s team showed off their intriguing potential in the annual intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday at Nippert Stadium!

Satterfield reacted to the Spring Game in a recent press conference via Cincinnati Athletics.

"“I thought all the way from guys that have been here for a long time or guys that just got here, there were plays made all over the field and it was great competition. That’s one thing that our guys did a great job on all spring was their competitive spirit in every drill we did. We’re excited about where we’re headed this summer. Our guys will get a little break but will be back in the middle of May and will be ready to go all summer long. They’re excited about it. A good sign is they wanted to put the ball down and keep playing. That’s awesome. You always want them to come back into the building to get extra work. That’s what these guys are doing right now so we have to continue that and have a great summer.”"
