Bearcats prep for Mountaineers

By Rontina McCann – bio | email

CINCINNATI (FOX 19) -- The 3-5 Bearcats prepare for a trip to Morgantown Saturday. The Mountaineers are 5-3, but both teams have dropped the last two games to conference foes.

Cincinnati lost Oct. 30 to Syracuse and played without starting quarterback Zach Collaros. He was out for a left knee bruise.

West Virginia and UC both are coming off a bye week and that was much needed time for the wounded Cats to heal. Collaros hasn't played since Oct. 22, when he was injured in the team's loss to South Florida at Nippert Stadium.

Kickoff is noon Saturday at Mountaineer Field.
