Cincinnati defensive staff getting it done
- by Doug Samuels 2 years ago
There have been only 10 performances this season where a defense has held their opponent to negative yards rushing. Cincinnati (6-1) has two of those impressive performances.
The first of those came against North Carolina State, where Cincinnati held the Wolfpack to -26 net rushing yards. The next week the Bearcats took on Miami (OH) and allowed -3 net yards rushing in a 27-0 shutout win.
Not only it is impressive to hold two teams to negative rushing yards, but co-defensive coordinators Tim Banks and John Jancek, defensive line coach Steve Stripling and the rest of the Cincinnati defensive staff, found a way to do it in back to back weeks. Very impressive.
Cincinnati is 2nd in the nation in rush defense and 17th in scoring defense. Defense is doing it's part in helping Cincinnati to a 6-1 overall record thus far, 2-0 and leading the Big East.
