Like most spring games across the college football landscape, offense can shine leaving fans questioning the direction a programs defense is headed.
Saturday morning Cincinnati fans left the Sheakley Athletic Center Stadium wondering what to expect when the team takes the field in a renovated Nippert Stadium in September when Alabama A&M opens the season.
On 129 plays the Bearcats offense posted 1,081 total yards and ten touchdowns. As expected quarterback Gunner Kiel was solid on the day along with back-up Hayden Moore who posted 391 yards passing and three touchdowns.
The duo of Bearcat quarterbacks had four favorite targets on the day led by Max Morrison with 138 yards on four catches and a score. Joining the Kenton, Ohio native with over a hundred yards was Nate Cole, Chris Moore and Johny Holton.
Head coach Tommy Tuberville watched all spring as several Bearcats went down with injuries. Hit hardest was the defensive secondary leaving Tuberville optimistic about what he’ll see when he brings his team together and head for Camp Higher Ground to prepare for the 2015 season.
Afterwards, Bearcat Insider captured the Bearcats head coach when he spoke with the media about his team.
