CINCINNATI (AP) — Quarterback Brendon Kay can't figure out why Cincinnati's offense takes so long to get started.
The Bearcats (3-2, 0-1 American Athletic) can't seem to get going. They've scored only 14 points in the first quarter all season, and all of those came in one game. That's their biggest concern as they get ready to play Temple (0-5, 0-2) in Friday night at Nippert Stadium.
Cincinnati's defense ranks fourth nationally in yards allowed and will be facing an Owls offense with a new quarterback. Redshirt freshman P.J. Walker will start in place of junior Connor Reilly, who has a knee injury.
The Bearcats will have a pregame tribute to freshman lineman Ben Flick, who was killed in a traffic accident last month.
