Memphis Round Up
There were again issues on specials teams, particularly out of kicker Tony Miliano. It’s clear something is wrong with him. Milano missed a field goal and an extra point tonight. He’s now made just 3 of 8 field goals this season and looks rattled out there before he even lines up for a kick. If Andrew Gantz isn’t pushing him in practice I truly fear what might happen if the Bearcats wind up needing Milano’s leg to win or tie a game this season.
The defense didn't have much a tough task with the Tiger offense. There were good parts and there were bad. Brandon Hayes had a 31 yard rushing TD where no one touched him. But Cincinnati held Memphis to something like 61 yards in the first half. But Memphis' first drive went 70 yards. They were kind of bailed out by the fact Memphis' receivers dropped at least 6 passes. A couple more were overthrown. Deven Drane had a huge INT to set up the McClung score. Jeff Luc forced a fumble that led to the Abernathy TD. They did their job.
Zach Edwards, UC’s rapidly improving freshman safety from Middletown, led the defense with 11 tackles and recovered a fumble.
Zach Edwards is just a stud.
The Cincinnati Bearcats (6-2, 3-1 AAC) methodically pulled away from the Memphis Tigers (1-6, 0-4 AAC), notching a 34-21 win at the Liberty Bowl Wednesday night. The Bearcats dominated far more than the score indicates: Cincinnati nearly doubled the Tigers' offensive output, outgaining Memphis 437-232. The Bearcats also kept the Tigers to just 2/11 on third down, and forced two turnovers.
