Coach Butch Jones is open to switching quarterbacks for Cincinnati's next game at Temple. Jones reiterated on Tuesday that incumbent Munchie Legaux and backup Brendon Kay will compete for the job in practice this week. Legaux was benched during a 35-24 win over Syracuse on Saturday, when he threw his sixth interception in three games. Kay took over and completed all of his three passes, including a touchdown. He's more of a pocket passer and could get a chance for his first career start on Saturday against Temple (3-5, 2-3 Big East). Cincinnati (6-2, 2-1) also runs a wildcat package behind receiver Jordan Luallen, a converted quarterback. He ran six times for 32 yards and completed a pass for 14 yards against Syracuse and is likely to get more plays.
