Who: Cincinnati (1-1) at N.C. State (2-0)
Where: Raleigh, N.C., Carter-Finley Stadium (57,583)
When: Thursday, 7:45 p.m.
The snap: The Bearcats might not be as powerful as they were the last two seasons when they played in BCS bowls, but they are still a formidable foe and are probably the better team. They are strong on offense, especially with mobile QB Zack Collaros, but the strength so far appears to be a run defense that is allowing 2.3 yards per carry save for a long run late in last week
