Brendon Kay sparked a Cincinnati offense that helped the Bearcats get started on the road back from a heartbreaking tragedy.

Kay ran for 18 yards and a score for the Bearcats (4-2, 1-1), coming off a turnover-plagued 26-20 loss at previously winless South Florida in their first game since freshman offensive lineman Ben Flick was killed in a car accident on Sept. 21.

''We had to get out there and get our minds off everything,'' Kay said.

Players have been wearing Flick’s number on both their helmets and shirts for a few weeks now. According to Tom Gelehrter, the school will also leave his locker dressed for the remainder of the season...
