TEAM NOTES

  • With the win, UC is bowl eligible for the sixth time in the last seven years. UC has been to 13 bowl games all time (7-6).
  • UC has a local tie with four former Bearcats on the roster of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles. TE Brent Celek, DL Trent Cole, WR Mardy Gilyard and OL Jason Kelce currently dot the Eagles roster. Kelce is out for the season with a knee injury.
  • With RB George Winn’s rushing TD in the first quarter, UC has a rushing TD in each game this season.
  • UC's 71-yard TD hookup from QB Brendon Kay to WR Kenbrell Thompkins in 15 seconds was UC's second-shortest scoring drive of the season behind George Winn's eight second 58-yard TD scamper in the season opener against Pittsburgh.
  • It was the third longest scoring pass for UC this season (Legaux to Kelce 78 yards vs. Fordham/Legaux to Abernathy 76 yards vs. Virginia Tech) and the fourth scoring play of 70 or more yards this season.
  • The Bearcats did not record a sack for the first time all season, snapping a 19-game streak overall. The last time UC was held without a sack was Sept. 10, 2011 at Tennessee.
  • UC played 68 student-athletes on the day, a season high.
  • UC finished with 472 yards of total offense (244 yards passing/228 yards rushing). The Bearcats have eclipsed 425 yards of total offense in eight of their nine games this season. It’s the 17th time (13-4 record) UC has surpassed the 400-yard mark under head coach Butch Jones.
  • UC averaged 7.7 yards per play (472 yards on 61 plays) Saturday, its highest total against a BIG EAST Conference foe this season and second-highest total of 2012 behind the 8.3 yards per play averaged against Fordham on Oct. 13 (472 yards in 57 plays).
  • UC has run for 200 or more yards in six games this season after gaining 228 yards on the ground at Temple.

 

 

INDIVIDUAL NOTES

  • QB Brendon Kay made his first career start against the Owls.
  • Kay hooked up with WR Anthony McClung for a 29-yard completion in the first quarter, the longest completion of Kay’s career. Kay bettered it with 2:21 in the first quarter on a 71-yard strike to WR Kenbrell Thompkins.
  • Kay added a 40-yard run in the second quarter, the longest of his career and finished with a career best 71 yards on the ground. Kay finished 13-of-21 for 244 yards and a pair of TDs. He completed passes to eight different receivers, including himself as he caught a deflected pass and advanced it five yards for his first career reception.
  • The 71-yard reception was a career long for Thompkins and the third longest for a UC wideout this season.
  • Thompkins finished with two catches for 79 yards and a TD, his second-best game of the season.
  • RB George Winn got UC on the board with a 1-yard run with 7:29 left in the first quarter. It was Winn’s eighth rushing TD of the season. He added a second TD on a 1-yard run on 4th and goal with 8:00 left in the first half. It is Winn’s fourth game in 2012 with multiple TDs.
  • He finished with 20 carries for 85 yards and two TDs. He has run for at least 75 yards in 10 consecutive games.
  • DB Drew Frey notched his seventh-career interception and first of the 2012 season just before halftime.
  • K Tony Miliano added a 22-yard field goal just before halftime and a 23 yarder late in the game. He is 12-of-16 on the season and 4-of-4 on kicks of 30 yards or less.
  • TE Blake Annen had his first reception of the season in third quarter.
  • WR Chris Moore hauled in his first career receiving TD on a 65-yard pass from Kay that Moore caught in stride at the 20 and took to the end zone. It was a career-long catch for Moore who had a career-best 65 yards on the day.
  • TE Travis Kelce caught four balls for 37 yards, upping his season totals to 23 receptions for 422 yards and four TDs, giving him the third-best season totals of all-time for a UC TE. Topping the list is Joe Koynock, who caught 44 passes for 496 yards and 4 TDs in 1990.
  • LBs Greg Blair and Maalik Bomar tied for the team lead with six tackles.
