 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Jerome Ford rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns, Desmond Ridder passed for 243 yards and two TDs, and No. 7 Cincinnati beat Murray State 42-7 on Saturday. The Bearcats were heavy favorites coming in, but the Racers outgained them 190-83 in the first half and led 7-0 in the second quarter. "The only way to grow up is to have some adversity," said Bearcats head coach Luke Fickell. "We kind of saw what we're made of. We found out a lot about each other in the second half." The score was tied at halftime before the Bearcats (2-0) scored touchdowns on four of their first five possessions in the second half.

Fickell was concerned about his team's focus this week with an invitation to join the Big 12 and trips to Indiana and No. 8 Notre Dame looming. "I don't want to put my head in the sand," Fickell said. "It is hard to deal with 18- and 22-year-olds and their ability to stay locked-in and focus when we're going to get everyone's best shot." Murray State's game plan to control the clock and keep the Bearcats' high-powered offense on the sidelines worked well in the first half. Murray State (1-1) held the ball for all but 1:30 of a scoreless first quarter, outgaining the Bearcats 128-7. "They came out and monotonously were moving the ball," Fickell said. "It frustrated us as much as anything. I give them an incredible amount of credit for their scheme." - Cincinnati/AP College Football
