The blurbs fromthe press release

Kiel will have a hard time topping his collegiate debut as he led Cincinnati to a 58-34 win against Toledo in the Bearcats' season-opener. He set an American Athletic Conference record with six touchdown passes and threw for 418 yards on 25-of-37 passing against the Rockets. He had four TD passes in the first half to help the Bearcats build a 41-14 halftime lead and had two fourth-quarter touchdowns to put the game away after Toledo had closed to within seven.

Geraci played a key part in the field position battle, which helped Cincinnati to a 58-34 win against Toledo in the Bearcats' season-opener. He averaged 38.2 yards on four punts in his first career game, including two kicks that were downed inside the 5-yard line.

Jeff Luc also made the weekly honor roll for the Bearcats for his 12 tackle debut in the middle of the defense. Well done everyone.
