CINCINNATI (AP) -- Richard Hall rushed 29 times for 143 yards and
a touchdown to lead Cincinnati to a 21-10 win over TCU on Saturday.
The Bearcats (4-4, 3-2 Conference USA) scored touchdowns on
three of their first five possessions and hung on despite only
crossing midfield once in the second half -- and that drive ended
with a missed field goal.
The Horned Frogs (4-4, 2-3) had three drives into Cincinnati
territory in the second half but came away with only three points.
Cincinnati took a 21-0 lead on Brad Glatthaar's 1-yard touchdown
run, a 64-yard TD run by Hall and Gino Guidugli's 1-yard scoring
pass to Brent Celek.
TCU made it 21-7 on Brandon Hassell's 17-yard touchdown pass to
Quentily Harmon with 5:31 left in the first half.
Peter Lococo's 20-yard field goal with 3:18 left in the third
quarter pulled the Horned Frogs to 21-10.
Lococo, who missed a 35-yard field goal in the first quarter,
was wide again on a 43-yard attempt to 10:06 to play. On its next
possession, TCU moved to the Cincinnati 39 before Hassell threw his
only interception to the Bearcats' Daven Holly.
Hassell finished 15-for-33 for 221 yards. Guidugli was 13-of-26
for 155 yards with no interceptions.
