Bearcats Cruise, Earn Seventh Victory of the Season

Brendon Kay made plays with both his arm and legs in his first career start on Saturday. - Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Senior Quarterback Brendon Kay was able to make big plays and manage the game for the Bearcats. George Winn continued to be a workhorse and together they led the Cats to their 7th victory of the year defeating the Temple Owls 34-10.

The Cincinnati Bearcats continued their march to a Big East Championship in the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday when they took on Temple. I wrote how big it would be for the Owls to upset Cincinnati, but Brendon Kay, George Winn and the rest of the Bearcats had other plans.

On their opening possession the Cats drove straight down the field and scored a touchdown on a one-yard run by Winn. That set a tone for the rest of the day full of big plays including a 40-yard run by Kay and 75-yard touchdown reception by Kenbrell Thomkins.

The Owls did make a push in the third quarter closing the gap to 24-10 with a Cody Booth touchdown reception. However, the Bearcat defense stopped Temple on their next drive and got the ball to newly found deep ball specialist Brendon Kay. Just minutes later he found Chris Moore streaking down the sideline for a 65-yard touchdown.

That play put the game on ice and the Bearcats showed they could put a team away. Some of the quarterback questions were answered as Kay showed he could run and pass with high efficiency. Bearcats Head Coach Butch Jones wanted Kay to manage the game. He did that and more today in the victory.
