During an annual matchup against the UCF Knights today, the Cincinnati Bearcats will lean on running back duo Corey Kiner and Myles Montgomery!

Kiner compiled a game-high 129 rushing yards with 15 carries, and Montgomery racked up 103 rushing yards and two touchdowns against the Baylor Bears.

Montgomery finished with a team-high 90 rushing yards and one touchdown but it wasn’t enough to propel Cincinnati past the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

The Florida product showed off his big play ability with a 63-yard touchdown to tie it early on before exiting with an injury late in the second quarter.

Cincinnati Football: Reflecting on the Bearcats history against conference rival UCF

Cincinnati should be able to keep it competitive this week but it’s certainly not going to be easy for the defense to limit UCF’s up-tempo offensive attack.

Following an impressive start to the regular season, the Bearcats are still searching for the first Big 12 win after suffering a sixth straight loss last week.

Since becoming conference rivals during their time in the AAC throughout the last decade, the teams have split eight previous meetings with a 4-4 record.

The most recent meeting took place last October as the Knights survived with a 25-21 victory in Orlando to move past the Bearcats in the AAC title race.
