Cincinnati Bearcats 59 Akron Zips 14: Boxscorin

The final score doesn't even begin to indicate how total an ass kicking this was. UC dominated every phase of the ball game from start to finish. Akron didn't begin to seriously drive the ball until the second half when UC went with a predominately second team defense to start the second half. That doesn't mean that there weren't some statistical oddities on the night. Check the box score.

  • Akron actually ended the game with more total yardage than UC. 349 to 342, but as stated above the vast majority of the Zips yards came against the 2nd and later 3rd team defenses

  • 13 takeaways through 3 games is just 1 less than the takeaway total for all of 2010
