The Cincinnati Bearcats kicked off their 2020 season opener this afternoon at Nippert Stadium. A beautiful sunny day with a game time temperature of 64°, the Bearcats squared off against Austin Peay. Austin Peay came into the game having previously played 2 games (0-2). Cincinnati sported their all white uniforms. UC received the opening kick-off. UC marched down the field and capped off the drive with a 29 yard touchdown pass from Desmond Ridder to Tre Tucker. Austin Peay responded with a drive that ended with a field goal making it 7-3. The UC marching band and the cheerleaders made up most of the crowd as they were socially distanced in the stands due to COVID-19 procedures. The Gerrid Doaks show got started on the next UC drive. Doaks would punch in a 1 yard touchdown run. That would be the first of 4 of his touchdowns for the day. By halftime, UC was out to a 28-3 lead. UC was clearly on their way to a season opening win. By the end of the 3rd quarter, UC held a 42-6 lead. As the 4th quarter started, UC tapped into their bench. Austin Peay put up 14 points in the 4th quarter that was nearly matched by UC’s 13 points. UC closed out the with a 55-20 win. The #13th ranked Bearcats will host #22 ranked Army next Saturday night at Nippert Stadium. This should be a much greater test for the Bearcats.
