09/22/18 – Ohio Bobcats @ Cincinnati Bearcats

The 3-0 Bearcats return to Nippert Stadium with an opportunity to match 2017’s total wins…in the fourth week of the season!

This week we welcome the Ohio University Bobcats, the MAC preseason pick to win it all.  OU comes to town with a 1-1 record, with a fairly close win over Howard (38-32) at home and a tough 31-45 loss to Virginia on the road.  While their MAC aspirations are still in tact, this appears to be a pretty good matchup for our Bearcats:

Ohio is:

  • allowing 598.5 yards/game
  • allowing 167 rushing yards/game (giddyup, Warren/Ridder/Thomas…and Doaks?!)
  • allowing 431.5 passing yards/game
  • averaging 393.5 yards/game – Bearcats are allowing 307
  • averaging 132 rushing yards/game – Bearcats are allowing 83.7
  • averaging 261.5 passing yards/game – Bearcats are allowing 145

 With cooler weather and a slight chance of rain in the forecast, we’ll be hitting The Grid bright and early, featuring a breakfast burrito bar, mimosas, and a cooler full of canned beer, including a very generous contribution from our friends at Fifty West Brewing Company (founders are OU grads):
