I wondered how Memphis managed to get that TD despite being clearly a mile or so below Cincinnati in most respect, then I looked at the NCAA stats when I thought about the punt return - the Bearcats are 106th in punt coverage.

It's interesting that a team that has all of 58 yards of total offense spread over 26 plays is only down by a single touchdown, but then AACtion bears an eerie resemblence to its predecessor in the old Big East. That's 2.23 yards per snap, incidentally, for Memphis.

When am I going to learn not to put money on Cincinnati.

Edit: Nevermind, they should cover.

Edit 2: Here we go again.
