AAC Week 3 Roundup
Who won? Memphis beat Bowling Green, 44-41. Temple beat UMass, 25-23. Cincinnati beat Miami (OH), 37-33. Navy beat ECU, 45-21. Tulane beat Maine, 38-7. Who lost? UConn lost to Missouri, 9-6. USF lost to Maryland, 35-17. Tulsa lost to Oklahoma, 52-38. ECU lost to Navy, 45-21. UCF lost to Furman, 16-15. SMU lost to TCU, 56-37. Best win? In a relatively unknown rivalry game, Cincinnati’s win over Miami (OH) preserved the team’s 10th straight Victory Bell. However, the real news from the game was Gunner Kiel’s concussion that forced him out of the game early in the third quarter. Redshirt freshman Hayden Moore stepped in for Kiel, and despite four turnovers, led a 66-yard scoring drive, capped of with a rushing touchdown of his own, with just over four minutes to go to seal the 37-33 victory. Best player performance? Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds continued his storied career by shredding East Carolina’s defense for 30 points of his own in the Midshipmen’s 45-21 victory Saturday. His five touchdowns were a game-high and he also accumulated 142 yards on the ground. He was by far the best player on the field and his talent shined brightly against the Pirates. What’s next? Thursday 9/24 Cincinnati plays at Memphis. Saturday 9/26 Navy will play at UConn. UCF will play at South Carolina. ECU will play Virginia Tech. SMU will play JMU. Houston will play Texas State. Game to watch? Navy and UConn could have the makings of an interesting game. The Huskies are a much-improved team this season and their defense has already proven to be the biggest strength of the squad thanks to the leadership of head coach Bob Diaco. Navy, as most people saw on Saturday, possesses one of the most dangerous and explosive defenses in the nation. If this game plays to form, it could very well be a battle of strengths. You can catch this game on Saturday at Noon on CBS Sports Network
