CINCINNATI (AP) — Syracuse expects to see the other side of Munchie Legaux.
After tough back-to-back games that included five interceptions, the Cincinnati Bearcats want their inexperienced quarterback to get out of the pocket and run on Saturday, forcing Syracuse to worry about more than just the pass.
The Orange (4-4, 3-1 Big East) have gotten into the race for the league championship by winning their last two, including a 37-36 victory at South Florida last week.
The Bearcats (5-2, 1-1) have fallen out of the Top 25 with back-to-back losses at Toledo and Louisville.
Although coach Butch Jones is sticking with his junior quarterback, he’s changing his methods, getting him to run more. Sophomore running back Ralph David Abernathy IV also is expected to get more carries on Saturday.
