CINCINNATI (AP) The Bearcats were going nowhere, and now their best running back was limping off the field, giving Gerrid Doaks the chance he'd long awaited.
The junior running back who's been beset by injuries took the game into his hands and kept the 21ST-ranked Bearcats unbeaten in the American Athletic. He ran for a pair of touchdowns and turned a short pass into a 28-yard score as Cincinnati held off Tulsa 24-13 on Saturday.
"He's an example in that locker room of what you can do when you never drop your head, you never give in," coach Luke Fickell said. "He's the reason we're sitting here happy right now."
