The Big East may have lost the conference realignment battle for Pitt and Syracuse, but it won the war between Cincinnati and N.C. State. The other one was probably more important.

Cincinnati Vs. N.C. State Final Score: Isaiah Pead, Bearcats Romp, 44-14

The Cincinnati Bearcats are way better than the N.C. State Wolfpack. After a sloppy first half, the Bearcats bled N.C. State dry in the second, winning 44-14 to go 3-1.

Cincy quarterback Zach Collaros had a fine time, throwing for 263 and running for 52 while scoring four total touchdowns. Running back Isaiah Pead averaged 6.7 yards per carry on his way to a 167-yard evening

The only thing N.C. State had going for it: two T.J. Graham touchdown catches that totaled 136 yards. Take away those two catches -- one a catch-and-run and the other a blown coverage -- and the Wolfpack would've gained only 186 yards on the evening, 318 fewer than the 504 Cincinnati piled up. So, yeah, it was even worse than it looks.
