Latest Odds: Cincinnati -11
Bearcats have looked like the second best team in the Big East all season long. After losing to undefeated Lousivlle two games back the Bearcats got back on the winning track beating Syracuse in week 10. Bearcats made a 2nd half QB switch as they replaced their starting QB Munchie Legaux with Brendon Kay. Kay played well leading the Bearcats to victory by managing the game and not turning the ball over. Looks like Kay and Legaux will both play QB this week with Kay getting the starting nod. Bearcats rushing attack should make playing QB very easy for either starter, Bearcats are averaging over 226 yards per game. In addition the defense might be the top defense in the Big East, Cicinnati Defense is only allowing 19 points per game.
Temple started off their inargual year in the Big East with two upset wins but since have lost three straight games all by 25 plus points. As the quality of oppenents has improved Temple has found it very difficult to score. Temple has only scored over 17 points once in Big East play and are only averaging 22 points on the season. Temple's passing game is one of the worst in CFB, the Owls are only averaging 122 yards per game through the air.

Ton of points to lay with a team that will be trying the split QB for the first time but it speaks to how bad the Temple offense is the last 4 games. Facing best defense in the Big East in our rankings will make Temple offense even worse than their already terrible stats. Bearcats roll to a 20 point plus win covering by halfime.
