Cincinnati (2-1) vs. Miami University (0-3) Game Preview

Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
How quickly can Cincinnati pick itself up, dust itself off, and get back among the living after a horrific final ten minutes against Houston?
The Bearcats had the Cougars in big, big trouble, but a pair of pick-sixes changed everything in the 40-16 loss. There’s still plenty of time for a talented team with plenty of promise and toughness to rally back and be a factor in the American Athletic Conference race, but first, it’s rivalry time.
You’ve heard it before – Miami is getting better and it’s more competitive.
But it’s true.
There’s no running game – it’s Miami, after all – but there’s a good enough passing game to stay alive, while the defense has been surprisingly good for an 0-3 start. It kept the high-powered Western Kentucky team from blowing up, and now it needs sophomore linebackers Brad Koenig and Junior McMullen to keep the Bearcats from running wild.
UC will rally back from the Houston problem with a defense that’ll come up with a few early turnovers to get comfortable. MU will rally back in the fourth, but it won’t be nearly enough.
