Cincinnati (6-1) vs. East Carolina (3-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Cincinnati is barreling towards a late-season showdown at Memphis, a possible American Athletic Conference title game appearance, and a chance at the Group of FIve’s New Year’s Six bowl slot.
The Bearcats could use a little tightening. The offense could stand to be a bit more consistent, it could be better on third downs, and it doesn’t do a good enough job of putting the biscuit in the basket once it gets the chance to put points on the board. The defense is making up for it with a slew of takeaways and a killer run D.
East Carolina is still trying to figure out how to beat an FBS team. It’s been competitive, but it’s having big problems on the offensive line for an attack that’s not doing a good enough job of moving the chains. Against the Bearcats, it’s going to have a hard time figuring finding anything that consistently works.
The Pirates will put up a bit of a fight at home and won’t get destroyed early on, but the Bearcat D will take over in the second half while the O grinds out drive after drive.
