Cougs on Cougs: Do Cincy like a local when BYU takes on the Cincinnati Bearcats

Jess and Mary get the inside scoop on Cincinnati from local Duane Wallace, break down some preseason basketball and more.

NCAA Football: Cincinnati at Brigham Young Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

It’s week 42 of Cougs on Cougs! Is it just us or did that bye week feel kind of long? BYU Football’s finally back at it Saturday against Cincinnati at Nippert Stadium in Ohio.

For Cougar fans who are making the trek back east, we brought on an expert in our last ‘Along the Trail to Fame and Glory’ segment of the season. Duane Wallace is a Bearcat fan living in Cincinnati who’s also come to love BYU! He came out to Provo for the matchup last year and loved it so much that he brought his family back out again this year.

Duane shares three things to do and three places to eat for traveling fans. His options include famous Cincinnati chili, donuts and more. He also recommends visiting the city’s front yard (The Banks), the city’s back yard (Washington Park) and more. Tweet us your pics if you check out any of his recommendations. We’re definitely sad we aren’t making the trip after hearing them. Bring us back a donut from Holtman’s?

You know what made the bye week pass a little faster? Two basketball games. We bring back the ‘3 Things’ segment to talk about three of our biggest takeaways after watching the Cougar Tipoff Scrimmage, and exhibition game against Seattle Pacific (which BYU won 102-82). The segment focuses on offensive production, defense and leadership on this young squad. Have you heard who the captains are yet?

In Talk of the Town we #pray4eric on his Econ midterm, take a look back at some of our favorite costumes from BYU Football’s Trunk or Treat, learn about a prestigious award our quarterback is up for plus more.

Cuteness alert: We bring you a special Halloween edition of Raising ‘Em Right involving some cute little ones who dressed as their favorite BYU players (i.e. 2-year-old Tanner Mangum, backwards baseball cap included) and a couple of Cosmo costumes.
