Cincinnati (4-0) vs. UConn (1-3) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Cincinnati is playing air-tight in some ways, and that might be enough.
The defense has been among the best in college football so far against the pass, the D overall leads the American Athletic, and the ground game is doing just enough to keep the offense moving.
Freshman QB Desmond Ridder is coming off a 274-yard day against Ohio, finally adding a little bit of a passing game to the Bearcat attack, but this game is about the ground game.
UConn is getting destroyed up front – allowing over 1,400 rushing yards and 15 scores so far – and that’s what UC is about to capitalize on.
Pound away with the decent ground game, expect the defense to generate plenty of third down stops, and don’t put Ridder in bad situations. It’ll all equal a 5-0 start.
