The Connecticut Huskies traveled to Cincinnati Saturday looking for their first win of the season.

But like most teams, UConn found out it is tough to win at UC’s Nippert Stadium.

The Bearcats made it tough all day for the Huskies who are now 0-6, 0-2 in the new American Athletic Conference.

The loss also ruined the homecoming of UConn interim head coach T.J. Weist, who was an assistant coach for the Bearcats the past three seasons under Butch Jones who left to become the head man at Tennessee.

Weist took over after the fourth game this season when Paul Pasqualoni was fired.

Cincinnati QB Brendon Kay keeps getting better each game. He has played a “best”  game each time out this season. Saturday afternoon, he tied a career high in touchdown passes with four while completing 17 of 24 passes for 300 yards. Kay also rushed for a touchdown for 5-2, 2-1 Cincinnati.

UC abandons plan to play home games at Paul Brown Stadium

The University of Cincinnati football program’s two-year experiment of playing football games in an NFL stadium has not met the expected financial increase it was seeking.

Head football coach Butch Jones and athletic director Whit Babcock say that the players preferred playing on campus at 35,000-seat Nippert Stadium rather than traveling downtown to play in the Bengals 65,000-seat stadium.

The Bearcats played the Oklahoma game there in 2010 and two Big East games in 2011 at PBS trying to help them attract fans, recruits and profile the program better. Those games only attracted between 40,000 to 42,000 fans.

The University of Cincinnati Bearcats football team and their 10,000-plus fans made the eight-hour road trip to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl and came out victorious over the SEC’s Vanderbilt Commodores, 31-24.

Head coach Butch Jones, who had a 4-8 team last year said the seniors were the reason for the team’s resurgence to 10-3 and a Big East championship.

It marks only the fifth time that the Bearcats have won 10 games in a season, 1951, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

With UC’s 13th all-time bowl appearance, their record is 7-6 overall.

The Bearcats wore a new helmet for Saturday’s game. It featured a matte black finish. The usual C-Paw logo was on the left side of the helmet, with the players’ jersey numbers on the right side.

The helmets were made for the Liberty Bowl only. The football team gets to keep the helmets as part of their bowl gifts.

The rest of their uniform was the same.
