Big plays lift No. 21 Bearcats over Fordham

CINCINNATI — Deven Drane scooted 76 yards for a touchdown after picking up a fumble and Munchie Legaux threw two TD passes including a 78-yarder to Travis Kelce to lead No. 21 Cincinnati past Fordham 49-17 on Saturday night.

The Bearcats (5-0) stayed perfect but the Rams (4-3), playing up a level from the Football Championship Subdivision, hung around for a half. The win was Cincinnati's 24th straight in nonconference games at Nippert Stadium and upped its overall winning streak to eight in a row.

After a sloppy first two quarters, the Bearcats came alive on offense. Legaux, Ralph David Abernathy IV and Jordan Luallen scored on runs to start the third quarter and the rout was on.
