Army-Cincinnati stat comparison

Cincinnati Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

Cincinnati's running back Richard Hall averages 108.6 rushing yards per game and ranks 13th nationally. The Bearcats also have an excellent run defense only allowing opponents 88 yards per game.

Weaknesses:

The Bearcats are on a three game losing streak losing to Miami (Ohio), Southern Miss, and UAB. Cincinnati averaged 24 points in each of these games, but gave up an average of 32 points in these games. UC's offense looks like it has been getting worse and worse in their past few outtings so look for Army to try to take advantage of that weakness.
