Cincinnati strikes first and fast

CINCINNATI -- Any worries that Cincinnati would overlook UConn or come out overconfident tonight?


The Bearcats zipped down the field on the opening possession and scored. The offense was running at peak efficiency under Zach Collaros, and Jacob Ramsey ripped off a long run inside the UConn 5. Then Isaiah Pead punched it in.

It took the Bearcats 2:57 to fire the first salvo.
