CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Brendon Kay is determined to continue his winning streak. Throwing for four touchdowns and running for another resulted in Cincinnati's 41-16 homecoming victory over Connecticut on Saturday.

Kay had a hand in four first-half touchdowns on Saturday, helping the Bearcats take control of the game.

One of Weist's first moves as acting coach was making the 6-foot-4 freshman Tim Boyle a starting quarterback. In his second start, Boyle threw an interception that helped the Bearcats dominate Connecticut late in the first half.

Deven Drane tipped Boyle's pass and picked it off, returning it 41 yards to the 2-yard line. Kay ran the final few inches on a keeper with 1:31 left in the half.

Kay completed three passes, including a 32-yarder to Max Morrison for another touchdown with 17 seconds left in the half for a 27-3 lead. Boyle was 22 of 39 for 310 yards with the three interceptions, one of them in the end zone.

Connecticut managed only 156 yards while falling behind 34-3 against a defense ranked sixth nationally in yards allowed and fourth in pass defense.

Kay got his fourth touchdown pass on a quick flip to Anthony McClung, who went 28 yards in the fourth quarter.
