    Pindell threw for 273 yards and rushed 22 times for 95 yards.

    Moore completed two touchdown passes to Kahlil Lewis and a two-point conversion to Mike Boone and got the Bearcats even early in the fourth quarter.

    The Bearcats led 7-6 at halftime. An interception by Carter Jacobs set up a four-play, 41-yard scoring drive, ending with 13-yard scoring pass from Moore to Lewis with 43 seconds left in the first half.

    Connecticut (3-9, 2-6) had taken a 6-0 lead on 37- and 26-yard field goals by Michael Tarbutt.
