A pair of 1-0 teams meet on Saturday afternoon as the Cincinnati Bearcats head into Purdue to take on the Boilermakers.
The Bearcats looked less than stellar in their season opener, while Purdue struggled a bit early, but eventually pulled away for a comfortable win.
The Bearcats season opening win against UT Martin was anything but stellar.
Cincinnati actually found themselves trailing 7-6 at the half and led just 14-7 after 3 quarters as they were certainly pushed to the brink.
The Bearcats opened as 38 point favorites, not even coming close to covering the number.
The offense racked up 400 yards, but it looked nothing like the Bearcats up tempo offense we’ve seen in the past.
QB Hayden Moore finished 21/34 for 260 yards, adding a touchdown and 1 interception.
Cincinnati will look to pick the pace up even more here against Purdue. The Bearcats offense couldn’t get any sort of rhythm going, as their defense allowed UT Martin to control the clock.
The defense will be the biggest key here in this one, as they got zero push up front and allowed a lot of 5 and 6 yard gains, which is something they simply cannot afford to do.
The Boilermakers were one of the bad beats in Week 1, as they allowed a touchdown with just 1:48 left to get backdoored on the -21.5 they laid against Eastern Kentucky.
From a non betting stand point, it was encouraging for Purdue to come away with a lopsided win.
Head coach Darrell Hazell is certainly on the hot seat after struggling so much over the past couple seasons for the Boilermakers and seeing his offense rack up 512 yards of total offense was a very nice sight.
Purdue’s offense was almost as balanced as they can get, rushing for 261 yards while adding 251 yards on the ground.
Defensively, Purdue will see a much tougher offense, but they can learn a thing or two from UT Martin.
Controlling the clock and tempo of the game while keeping the Bearcats offense out of rhythm is the key to this game.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Prediction
Cincinnati will have to rebound from a game where they looked sluggish and all out of sorts.
Their offense is expected to put up a lot of points this season, but UT Martin showed the future opponents of the Bearcats that slowing the game down may be the best option.
