CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati and South Florida are finishing off the seasons with their title hopes in tatters, pretty much like their quarterbacks.
The Bearcats (7-3, 3-2 Big East) had their title hopes dashed by a 10-3 loss at home to league-leading Rutgers last Saturday.
Senior quarterback Brendon Kay hurt his non-throwing elbow during the game, leaving the possibility that Cincinnati could have to return to Munchie Legaux at some point. Kay is expected to start on Friday.
South Florida (3-7, 1-4) lost B.J. Daniels to a broken left ankle on Nov. 3. Bobby Eveld took over and separated his left shoulder during the first quarter of a 40-9 loss to Miami last weekend. Matt Floyd finished it out and completed 20 of 35 passes for 175 yards with a pair of interceptions.
