    And You Care Because … The Bearcats earned a piece of the AAC title, getting all the points they’d need in the second quarter on a three-yard Mekale McKay touchdown catch and a one-yard Mike Boone run. The defense did the rest, setting up the first score on a forced fumble, and allowing just two field goals. The Owls got a 30-yard Austin Jones field goal in the first, and a 31-yard kick in the third, and that was it.
