There was plenty to celebrate for Cincinnati on Saturday. Not only did the Bearcats end Notre Dame’s 26-game winning streak at home, but they will likely rise up in next week’s Top 25 rankings due to their win and No. 3 Oregon’s 31-24 loss to Stanford.
Cincinnati’s defense played a huge role in the win, as they intercepted one pass each from Notre Dame quarterback’s Jack Coan and Tyler Buchner. Those costly interceptions caused the Fighting Irish to enter halftime trailing the Bearcats 17-0.
Quarterback Desmond Riddler helped lead the Bearcats to their win, as he threw for 297 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions while completing 19-of-32 of his passes. Riddler also ran for 26 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.
The Bearcats will look to continue their undefeated season this Friday when they play the Temple Owls.
