Cincinnati QB Kay gets extra season from NCAA

The NCAA has granted Cincinnati senior quarterback Brendon Kay
an extra season of eligibility, giving the Bearcats a proven passer
heading into their first year under coach Tommy Tuberville.

Kay replaced the struggling Munchie Legaux last season and
helped Cincinnati win a share of the Big East title and a berth in
the Belk Bowl. The Bearcats went 3-1 in Kay’s four starts.

Kay was hurt repeatedly during his college career, missing time
in 2008 and 2011. He was limited to six career games heading into
this season.

He went 70 of 113 for 966 yards and six touchdowns after
replacing Legaux, a junior. Kay is expected to start in the Belk
Bowl on Dec. 27 against Duke.
