Brendon Kay showed off his arm and deep touch on the night. More than that he has really spread the wealth around. Four different Bearcats (Blake Annen, Max Morrison, Mekale McKay and Jarden Golden) have receptions covering at least 30 yards. All three running backs have been productive so far.

The defense has been stellar, aside from one bad drive where they were gashed for a 35 yard run by Rumeal Morris setting up the Demons only TD of the game. Zach Edwards has really caught my eye to this point. The game is still somewhat in doubt, so the starters will probably get a series or two before giving way to the young guns.
