NCAA Game Summary - Cincinnati at Houston



(Saturday, November 23)

Final Score: Cincinnati 24, Houston 17

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Brendon Kay threw for 386 yards and two touchdowns, adding another on the ground, as the Cincinnati Bearcats took down the Houston Cougars, 24-17, in an American Athletic Conference showdown at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Kay converted 29-of-50 passing and was picked off twice, while also being sacked two times in the victory. Anthony McClung finished with 137 yards receiving on nine catches for the Bearcats (9-2, 6-1 AAC), while Shaq Washington added 132 yards on 10 receptions and Chris Moore scored twice on four receptions for 72 yards. Hosey Williams ran for 84 yards on 13 carries.

John O'Korn threw for 171 yards and a score on 13-of-30 passing for the Cougars (7-4, 4-3). Deontay Greenberry finished with 64 yards and a TD on six catches.

After a scoreless first quarter the Bearcats struck early in the second, scoring on a 40-yard touchdown from Kay to Moore in the first minute of the period. They added a 25-yard field goal from Tony Miliano midway through the quarter to up their lead to 10-0.

With just under six minutes to play in the half, the Cougars finally got on the board when O'Korn found Greenberry for a 12-yard scoring pass. Cincinnati scored just before intermission when Kay hooked up with Moore once again, this time on a three-yard touchdown pass with 1:29 on clock as they took a 17-7 lead into halftime.

The Bearcats extended their lead to 24-7 midway through the third on a 14-yard scoring run by Kay.

The Houston defense got on the board when Trevon Stewart returned a fumble 15 yards for a touchdown to make the score 24-14. The Cougars added a 27-yard field goal late in the third.

After the Bearcats missed two fourth-quarter field goals, including a 24- yarder with 1:23 remaining, Houston worked its way down the field to the Bearcats' 37, but O'Korn tried to scramble on the final play, gaining only six yards as time expired.

The Bearcats out-gained the Cougars on offense, 573-278, holding the hosts to just 33 yards on the ground. Cincinnati extended its winning streak to six games with the win.
