College Football Fantasy Draft News 9-29-2015

College football action for Thursday night features the Cincinnati Bearcats at home to face the Miami Hurricanes. College football fantasy draft GM’s can tune to ESPN on October 1st at 7:30PM Eastern Time to track the results of their roster picks.

Miami has a record of 3-0 on the year and will be coming off a bye week. They were in a high scoring game in week three as they defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers 36-33 in overtime. The Hurricanes are putting up 41 points per game and that is good for 16th best in college football. The other victories for Miami came against Bethune Cookman at home and a road win at Florida Atlantic. This road game at Cincinnati precedes a road contest the following week at Florida St.

Cincinnati is a 2-2 team this year. Their losses came against Temple at home and last week they lose 53-46 at Memphis. In that loss the Bearcats rolled up 752 yards of offense. Turnovers were a factor in the loss as Cincinnati had a -2 margin in defeat. The teams combined for 1000 yards of passing offense so the Hurricanes could be game planning to exploit them.

With the injury to Gunner Kiel it looks as if Moore will get the start in this one. The freshman signal caller has hit on 56% of his throws for 782 yards with five touchdowns and four picks. In the Memphis game last week Moore hit 31 of 53 passes for 557 yards with four touchdowns and two picks.
