Cincinnati QB Kay gets extra season from NCAA

CINCINNATI (AP) -- 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.
