Cincinnati Bearcats running back Corey Kiner posted a game-high 129 yards and two touchdowns during a historic win over conference foe Houston Cougars!

Following an impressive first half performance that included a 62-yard run, Kiner continued dominating as Cincinnati earned the first ever Big 12 victory.

Kiner found the end zone midway through the first half to give the Bearcats a 14-7 lead before scoring a game-sealing touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

The Cincinnati native surpassed the 100-yard mark for a second consecutive game and inched closer to securing the first 1,000-yard campaign of his career.
