CINCINNATI (AP) — Playing as a ranked team for the first time this season, No. 21 Cincinnati wants to see its junior quarterback make everything look routine.
Cincinnati (4-0) has two chances to fix its biggest problems before getting back into Big East play. The Bearcats’ most glaring shortcoming: Munchie Legaux is missing the easy throws. He often winds up and puts too much on his passes when he sees an open receiver.
Legaux overshot one in the corner of the end zone, then severely overthrew another down the sideline during the first half of a 52-14 win over southwest Ohio rival Miami on Saturday. The wasted chances didn’t matter against Miami, and Legaux could probably get away with it again on Saturday against Fordham (4-2).
Next, though, come games at Toledo and at Big East favorite Louisville, where every missed chance could make the difference.
