The Cincinnati Bearcats are overwhelming favorites to extend their undefeated record Saturday when they face the Fordham Rams of the FCS Patriot League. Cincinnati has been installed as a 39-point favorite to win.
The Bearcats are 4-0 and ranked No. 21 in the AP poll. It marks the first time since Cincinnati's undefeated 2009 Sugar Bowl season that the Bearcats have made it through the first four games of the season without a loss. Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux has taken nearly every snap through that run of wins, throwing for 236.5 yards per game and adding another 48 on the ground. Senior halfback George Winn was dominant in last week's win over Miami University, running for 128 yards on just 16 carries and scoring two touchdowns.
Fordham enters the Saturday contest at 4-2, with losses to Lehigh and Villanova. The Rams are led by quarterback Ryan Higgins, who threw for 305 yards against Georgetown last week, and halfback Carlton Koonce, who is averaging 135 yards rushing per game. Junior cornerback Ian Williams already has three interceptions on the season.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 ET at Nippert Stadium. The broadcast is available on ESPN3.
