A Peek Ahead: Cincinnati

The Cougars have a short week to prepare for their next opponent and the long weather delay on Saturday did not do them any favors. Here is sneak peek at this week's opponent, the Cincinnati Bearcats.

The Cougars have short week this week that was made shorter, by a few hours at least, by the weather that delayed the competition of their game with Lamar.

The Cougars opponent in week 3, the Cincinnati Bearcats, also had a scheduled 11 A.M kickoff this morning as they traveled to Purdue and came away with a 38-20 road win over the Boilermakers.

A few of the key players in the Bearcats win today:

Hayden Moore: Starting quarterback Hayden Moore had a standout game in the Bearcats win, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for two more scores. He is a player the Cougars will have to account for next Thursday night.

Nate Cole: One of Moore's favorite targets early on this season. He caught six passes for 81 yards and two scores on Saturday.

Mike Tyson & Tyrell Gilbert: Tyson had three interceptions in the Bearcats win over Purdue Saturday and Gilbert added another. It looks like Tyson is the Bearcat's nickel back.

The Bearcats are now also 2-0 on the season heading into their first American Athletic Conference game of the season.

The Bearcats and head coach Tommy Tubberville hold their weekly press conferences on Tuesday at 11:30 A.M.
