Kay throws 4 TDs, Cincinnati beats UConn 41-16
CINCINNATI 41, CONNECTICUT 16

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Brendon Kay followed one of his best games
with an even better one, throwing for four touchdowns and
running for another on Saturday as Cincinnati pulled away to a
41-16 victory over winless Connecticut.

The sixth-year senior was the American Athletic Conference's
Offensive Player of the Week for a three-touchdown performance
in a win over Temple. He had a hand in four first-half
touchdowns on Saturday, helping the Bearcats (5-2, 2-1) take
control on a cool, rainy afternoon.

Kay tied his career high with the four touchdown passes - each
to a different receiver - and was 17 of 24 for 300 yards.

UConn (0-6, 0-2) had a tough time overall in what amounted to a
homecoming for interim head coach T.J. Weist, who took over
after Paul Pasqualoni was fired after four games. Weist was an
assistant at Cincinnati the last three seasons under Butch
Jones, who left for Tennessee.

One of Weist's first moves as interim coach was elevating
freshman Tim Boyle to starting quarterback. In his second start,
the 6-foot-4 pocket passer was under constant pressure and threw
an interception that helped the Bearcats take control late in
the first half.

Deven Drane tipped Boyle's pass and picked it off, returning it
41 yards to the 2-yard line. Kay ran the final few inches on a
keeper with 1:31 left in the half.

Boyle was sacked by Silverberry Mouhon as Cincinnati forced a
punt, and Kay completed three passes, including a 32-yarder to
Max Morrison for another touchdown with 17 seconds left in the
half for a 27-3 lead. Boyle was 22 of 39 for 310 yards with the
three interceptions, one of them in the end zone.

Connecticut managed only 156 yards while falling behind 34-3
against a defense ranked sixth nationally in yards allowed and
fourth in pass defense.

Kay slightly injured the wrist on his throwing arm when it hit a
teammate's helmet on a follow-through in the second quarter. He
stayed in the game and threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Blake
Annen on the next play, hitting the closely covered tight end in
stride.

Kay got his fourth touchdown pass on a quick flip to Anthony
McClung, who went 28 yards in the fourth quarter. It was the
third time in his career that Kay threw for four TDs.

Jordan Luallen, a running quarterback who comes in for wildcat
packages, threw his first career touchdown pass on Cincinnati's
opening drive of the second half. He faked a handoff to Kay, who
stayed in the game as a receiver and went in motion, and lobbed
the ball 27 yards to a wide-open Chris Moore.

The Bearcats nearly had another touchdown in the third quarter
when safety Mike Tyson returned an interception 87 yards, but
was stripped of the ball at the 7 and fumbled it out of the end
zone for a touchback.
