This weekend, the Hokies will travel to FedExField to take on the University of Cincinnati Bearcats at 3:30 pm on ESPNU. The Hokies are going into this game as a 7-pt favorite, but everyone associated with the football program – from fans to coaches to players – has a healthy respect for a Bearcat team that steamrolled the Pitt Panthers a few weeks ago. As Beamer himself has mentioned, Cincinnati has a very athletic team with plenty of agile, speedy players, and they whipped a team that also whipped the Hokies. Make no mistake here – this is a game the Hokies can lose.
The Bearcats come into this game having only played two games previously. The first was a sound thumping of the Pitt Panthers, who only had five days after a heartbreaking loss to Youngstown State to get ready for a Cincinnati team that had been preparing for Pitt for two weeks. Cincinnati followed up that victory with another win against Delaware State, and although they got the “W” in that game, the Bearcats really didn’t play all that well offensively, turning the ball over 6 times.
So, what can the Hokies expect to see on Saturday from Cincinnati? Let’s dive right in…
