Recap: Miami-Ohio vs. Cincinnati

Oxford, OH (Sports Network) - The Bearcats' defense held the RedHawks to just a single net yard in the second half as Cincinnati claimed a 14-0 victory over Miami-Ohio in the annual Battle for the Victory Bell game at Yager Stadium.

Brendon Kay went 23-of-37 for 171 yards and was intercepted twice while under center for Cincinnati (3-1) as it won for the second week in a row. Ralph David Abernathy amassed a game-high 90 yards on 24 attempts while Hosey Williams contributed 78 yards and a touchdown on 20 rushes. S Washington made 11 catches for 68 yards. Jordan Stepp played a big role in the defensive excellence as he registered two of the Bearcats' five sacks.

Miami (0-3) failed to pick up its first win as Austin Boucher went 7-of-16 for 80 yards with two interceptions. The RedHawks gained only seven yards on 29 rushing attempts and moved the chains on only four occasions. Dayonne Nunley and Heath Harding both managed to record interceptions in the setback.

Neither side managed to even attempt a field goal in the first half. Miami wasted great field position on multiple occasions and punted from Cincinnati territory once and was stopped on downs at the Bearcats' 39 late in the second quarter. The Bearcats turned the ball over twice in the opening 30 minutes.

Cincinnati moved the ball with more success in the second half, but Tony Miliano missed a 38-yard field goal attempt near the midway point of the third quarter and had a 36-yard try blocked in the opening seconds of the fourth quarter.

Cincinnati finally ended the draught with just under five minutes left in the fourth frame as Williams rushed four yards for a score. Miliano's successful extra-point try gave the visitors a 7-0 lead. The Bearcats added some insurance as Kay punched in it from a yard out with just over two minutes left to play.

The RedHawks finished the game with only 87 yards of total offense. Senior punter Zac Murphy set a new program record with an 84-yard punt late in the first half. It also set the new high-mark for longest punt in stadium history.

The Bearcats had not shut their opponent out for an entire game since Oct. 1, 2011, when they coasted to a 27-0 win over Miami in Oxford. The RedHawks have been held to just 21 points through three games while allowing 107 during that span.
