Cincinnati’s Monday Sports Manager

A good weekend for Cincinnati football

The Bearcats are now 3 – 0 after a huge 28 – 18 win at Oregon State. Then Saturday’s win propelled them even further; No. 14 in AP (up from #17) and No. 15 in Coaches’ (up from #21). A big game coming up this week at home against Fresno State. Fresno looked explosive at times in a 51 – 34 loss at home to Boise State last Friday. Their one running back had 234 rushing yards and three touchdowns. So the Bearcat defense will get another test. This Saturday’s game is at noon and is a ‘White Out’ game. It should be a sell-out.

And the Bengals won! Yes, the Bengals won at Green Bay. A friend on Facebook said he thought Palmer still looked “off”. But the defense played well and Cedric Benson ran well. And on this day, that equaled a win.

The Reds are continuing to play baseball. Big news last week I guess was the announcement of the 2010 schedule. And this Saturday has the very cool All-Access Baseball Experience. If I wasn’t going to the UC game, I’d be going to this.

In other local sports news, Cincinnati native Rich Franklin lost his UFC 103 headline match on Saturday by KO to Vitor Belfort in the first round.
