CINCINNATI (AP)-- George Winn ran for a pair of touchdowns, including a 58-yarder on Cincinnati's first play of the game, and the Bearcats took advantage of more Pittsburgh mistakes for a 34-10 victory on Thursday night, opening a Big East season that will lead to huge changes.
It was the start of the Big East's final season before a major overhaul. West Virginia has already left for the Big 12, and Pitt and Syracuse will head to the ACC after the season.
Cincinnati (1-0) won four of the last five games in the Ohio River rivalry.
Munchie Legaux completed 14 of 28 passes for 205 yards, including a pair of short passes that running back Ralph David Abernathy IV turned into touchdowns. Legaux also ran six times for game-high 117 yards.
Pitt (0-2) had another sloppy game only five days after the first one, a stunning 31-17 loss to Youngstown State.
