No. 7/8 Cincinnati Bearcats host Murray State

Perhaps experiencing a hangover from all of the Big 12 Conference news from the previous day, the University of Cincinnati football team survived a sluggish start on Saturday to remain undefeated.

After sleep-walking through the first half, the No. 7/8-ranked (Associated Press/Coaches) Bearcats used a big second half by running back Jerome Ford to pull away from FCS foe Murray State 42-7 Saturday at Nippert Stadium.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Racers, of the Ohio Valley Conference, grabbed a 7-0 lead with 13:41 to play in the second quarter on a 1-yard rushing touchdown by quarterback Preston Rice.

The Bearcats (2-0) tied the game with 9:41 left in the first half when quarterback Desmond Ridder linked up with tight end Noah Davis on a 2-yard score.
