Bearcats Win The Old Fashioned Way

 OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - With its state-of-the-art passing attack stymied, No. 10 Cincinnati showed it can win the old-fashioned way, too.

   Jacob Ramsey ran for 103 yards and three touchdowns in Cincinnati's pass-oriented offense Saturday, and the Bearcats broke open a close game in the fourth quarter for a 37-13 victory over Miami (Ohio) that showed a little grit to go with the glitz.

   "You just try to keep winning," coach Brian Kelly said. "Today was not our A-game." The oldest rivalry west of the Allegheny Mountains has been a mismatch since Kelly showed up at Cincinnati and turned the Bearcats (5-0) into Big East champs.

   They won their fourth straight over Miami (0-5) in blustery conditions in front of Yager Stadium's biggest crowd in six years.

  They did it in an uncharacteristic way. Tony Pike had a so-so game, going 23 of 42 for 270 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in the wind. The senior came in with 70.5 percent completion percentage, but repeatedly forced throws into a defense that double-teamed his top receivers and fell back to take away the long pass.

   "You're going to have games like this," Pike said. "The conditions weren't perfect." The Bearcats put the game in Ramsey's hands. He became the first Bearcat to run for 100 yards since the opening game of the 2007 season, and the 15th in school history to score three touchdowns in a game. 

   The RedHawks fell to 0-5 for the second time in four seasons. They're coming off a two-win season that prompted them to go outside the Cradle of Coaches and hire Notre Dame offensive coordinator Michael Haywood, who has a young team featuring seven freshman starters.
