Cincinnati 31, Eastern Kentucky 0

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dominick Goodman caught a touchdown pass from
both of Cincinnati's quarterbacks to help the Bearcats defeat
Eastern Kentucky 31-0 on Saturday night in the season opener for
both teams.

Nick Davila, who completed 10 of 19 passes for 121 yards, hit
Goodman on a 15-yard scoring throw in the second quarter. Goodman
grabbed a 6-yard TD pass in the third from Dustin Grutza, who was
9-of-15 passing with 161 yards.

Cincinnati also scored on Butler Benton's 2-yard run and a
6-yard run by Bradley Glatthaar, who rushed for 52 yards on 11
carries.

Eastern Kentucky's Josh Greco completed 16 of 30 passes for 159
yards and had three interceptions. He was sacked three times.

The Colonels got as close as Cincinnati's 15-yard line in the
fourth quarter but lost the ball when Greco was picked off by
Dominic Ross with 10:42 remaining.

Eastern Kentucky drove back to the 20 on their next possession
but Cincinnati's DeAngelo Smith intercepted Greco's pass on the 1.
In their last drive, the Colonels failed to get beyond their own
45.

Brent Celek caught six passes for 81 yards for Cincinnati, and
Goodman had 48 yards on four catches. Kevin Lovell added a 34-yard
field goal.

Mark Dunn led Eastern Kentucky's rushers with 58 yards on 15
carries, and Lewon Lurry caught two passes for 60 yards.
