  Ben Bryant passed for 314 of his 354 yards in the first half with a career-high four touchdowns, and Tyler Scott had career-highs with 185 receiving yards and three TDs, as Cincinnati defeated Indiana 45-24 on Saturday. The Bearcats (3-1) won in Bloomington last season, a victory they believe helped jumpstart a 13-1 season and College Football Playoff berth. IU had won the previous five meetings. Byron Threats' first career interception and a 28-yard return gave Cincinnati first-and-goal at the six. The Bearcats settled for a 24-yard field goal by Ryan Coe to go ahead 3-0.

On the Bearcats' first play from scrimmage after the Hoosiers tied the score with a field goal, Bryant found Scott wide open for a 75-yard touchdown making the score 10-3. It was the longest pass play for the Bearcats since Scott's 81-yard TD against Miami (OH) last season. Bryant's 5-yard TD pass to Tre Tucker made the score 17-3 early in the second quarter. The Hoosiers (3-1) answered back on Connor Bazelak's 19-yard TD pass to senior running back Josh Henderson, but Bryant's second TD pass to Scott put Cincinnati ahead 24-10 with 4:33 left in the first half. Bazelak completed 31 of a school-record 66 pass attempts for 280 yards and two TDs with two interceptions. Shaun Shivers rushed for 79 yards and a TD. - Cincinnati/AP College Football

  University of Cincinnati Bearcats defensive lineman Malik Vann, a former Fairfield High School standout, could miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a pectoral injury he suffered during UC's 63-10 win against Kennesaw State last Saturday. Coach Luke Fickell: "He had surgery today on his pec, so I don't know exactly how long, but it's one of those (injuries) that it doesn't look great. Which is really tough - a fifth-year senior guy that has really had a really, really, really good offseason and poured a lot of things into it. He's a leader on the team, and it's one of those freak things...I don't know that we'll get him back. But I never rule those things completely out." - Cincinnati Enquirer

  The standard at the safety position is sky high at the University of Cincinnati. The Bearcats have had four safeties drafted to the NFL in Luke Fickell's five seasons as head coach. Three of those safeties are currently vying for prominent roles on their respective teams. As Darrick Forrest (Washington Commanders), James Wiggins (Arizona Cardinals) and Bryan Cook (Kansas City Chiefs) are working through NFL training camp, their former Bearcats teammate, Ja'von Hicks, is working to uphold the standard they set at Cincinnati. "It has its moments where it has its highs," Hicks said of the responsibility of upholding that standard. "I enjoy leading the young guys. And then there's times where it's also stressful, being that I'm the only real veteran in the safety room. I'm OK with it, though. Put everything on my shoulders. I'm OK with leading the young bulls."

Hicks could've tried his luck in the 2022 NFL Draft like his longtime friend Cook, but he decided instead to stay at Cincinnati for one more season thanks in large part to the efforts of Bearcats co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Colin Hitschler. "Last year, he was a vocal leader," Hitschler said. "Him and Cook were a steady presence in the back end of one of the best secondaries in the country. He's been there and done it. It's great to have him back. It was a huge recruiting battle to bring him back for a fifth year. It was as important as any recruiting battle there is. From a leadership standpoint, he just brings that calmness to the room." With 29 career starts, including starting all 14 games alongside Cook and All-American cornerbacks Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner and Coby Bryant last season, Hicks is now the undisputed leader of Cincinnati's defensive backfield. - Cincinnati Enquirer

  The University of Cincinnati football team is moving on from three key defensive linemen after their College Football Playoff appearance following the 2021 season. Defensive end Myjai Sanders was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals. Defensive tackle Curtis Brooks went to the Indianapolis Colts, and defensive tackle Marcus Brown graduated. For head coach Luke Fickell and defensive coordinator Mike Tressel, there are plenty of gaps to fill.

With 24 days left before Cincinnati faces SEC foe Arkansas on Sept. 3, the clock is ticking. Luckily, the Bearcats have a solid base of defensive linemen in Jowon Briggs (junior), Malik Vann (graduate), Jabari Taylor (graduate) and Dominique Perry (redshirt sophomore). "All these different dudes who can play some football," junior center Jake Renfro said. "As an offensive lineman, we go against those dudes every day. We're making each other better, fighting for those reps, getting really good work in." Renfro said the mentality, iron sharpens iron, really comes into fruition when facing people like Briggs, who he called one of the strongest guys he's ever seen in his life. - Cincinnati Enquirer

  Gino Guidugli, who has served as Cincinnati's quarterbacks coach since 2018, is taking over the offense this season after Fickell's longtime offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock joined Brian Kelly at LSU. Guidugli acknowledged that Prater and Bryant are vastly different quarterbacks. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Bryant is more of a pocket passer, while Prater, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound 2019 Ohio Mr. Football from Wyoming High School, possesses a more athletic, dual-threat skill set. Guidugli said Prater's and Bryant's reps will rotate differently each day, as he is scripting practices in a way that caters to each player's strengths to give them both an opportunity to succeed. "Hopefully, when it's all said and done, the arrows are pointing in one direction and it's not that tough a decision," Guidugli said. "They're really both playing their ass off." - Cincinnati Enquirer
