UConn Football: Week 10 Opponent's Review

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Army (2-6): The over/under between the three military schools - Army, Air Force, Navy - have favored the under, 26-8-2. The trend of low scoring games continued as Army led Air Force 3-0 early in the first quarter. Air Force took a 6-3 lead to halftime before outscoring Army 17-3 in the second half and winning 23-6. The game was played a week after it was reported that 20 Army cadets, two officers and two coaches were disciplined for recruiting parties that involved underage drinking and Army cheerleaders. The over/under for that game was 54. Army allowed 242 rushing yards and 141 passing yards, while gaining 122 rushing yards and 47 passing yards - completing just 3 of 13 passing attempts. Air Force ran 23 plays more plays than Army and out-performed Army 21-8 on first downs. The Knights finished the day 1 for 12 on third down conversions.

Cincinnati (5-3): Cincinnati turned in a dominant performance as the Bearcats took a 24-0 lead over Tulane at halftime, winning 38-14. Running backs Rodriguez Moore and Mike Boone each had 15 carries, Moore had 124 yards rushing and Boone finished with 113 yards and a touchdown. Cincinnati turned the ball over three times and forced one turnover. The Bearcats outgained Tulane 479 to 380.

Memphis (5-3): Memphis  won back-to-back games for the first time all season, defeating Tulsa 40-20. Tulsa started out the scoring with a six yard fumble return with six seconds left in the first quarter. The Tigers scored with 14 seconds left in the half to go up 20-14. Memphis continued their well-rounded attack, gaining 243 yards on the ground and 183 through the air. Although the Tigers gained 426 yards, they allowed Tulsa to gain 411 yards. Tulsa had 11 penalties for 111 yards, while Memphis committed only four penalties for 40 yards.

Southern Methodist (0-7): The Mustangs had a bye, which has become the only way that SMU does not lose on a weekly basis.
