True freshman running back Kazmeir Allen dashed for a 74-yard touchdown run on just his third touch as a Bruin and continued to sprint through the end zone. He still hasn’t stopped. The main problem for Allen and first-year head coach Chip Kelly against Cincinnati, however, was the rest of the young team’s inability to keep up.
Michigan graduate transfer Wilton Speight started the game but left with an injury midway through the second quarter. Kelly turned to true freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who was unable to stay in rhythm against the Cincinnati defense. Inconsistency within the offense, two turnovers and an inability to stop Cincinnati running back Michael Warren (141 yards and three touchdowns) led to a 26-17 defeat.
