Tulane vs Cincinnati Preview

The winners of this game get the right to host the the American Athletic Conference regular season championship on December 3.

A huge question mark looms over this one, however, as Cincinnati is still unsure whether Ben Bryant or Evan Prater will get the start at quarterback. Bryant hurt his foot in the first half last week in the team’s 23-3 victory over Temple, so Tulane has been preparing to face either QB all week.

Bryant completed 9-of-18 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown before going down with the foot injury. Prater was solid in relief, going 12-17 for 127 yards.

“I don’t know if there’s going to be a whole lot of [practice] reps this week for Ben” Bearcats head coach Luke Fickell said about the situation at QB. “But he’s played a lot of ball, and if we get to the game-time situation and he’s able to do it, then we can go that direction.”

“It is a little different,” Tulane coach Willie Fritz said, via Nola.com. “We’ll see what happens when they come out there. I’ve had games where I thought a guy wasn’t playing and he plays. Same thing the other way. But (Bryant and Prater) are quite a bit different in terms of what they do and what their makeup is at quarterback.”

The Green Wave are coming off a 59-24 win over SMU last weekend. Tulane running back Tyjae Spears racked up 121 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, averaging 9.3 yards per carry. Quarterback Michael Pratt went 9-14 for 141 yards and three passing touchdowns, also adding 70 yards rushing and three scores on the ground in the victory.

In addition to hosting the AAC title game, the winner here will get better positioning to be in the New Year’s Six bowl, so there’s a great deal at stake. The Green Wave are 4-0 on the road this season, and the Bearcats currently have a 32-game winning streak at Nippert Stadium, so something’s gotta give in this one.

Both teams are allowing 19 points a game on defense, so this is about as evenly matched as it gets. “Obviously, this week is huge,” Fickell said. “It’s for everything and for all the marbles. This is the start of the championship. This is what we prepare for. This is what we envision. This is the one goal – that we don’t talk about – that we have when we start camp. And it’s senior day.”
