The Bearcats couldn’t replicate last week’s dominating performance, as they had the tables turned on them by QB Nathan Scheelhaase and the Fighting Illini, being blown off the field by a final score of 45-17. But, they lost more than just the game on Saturday.
In a scary moment in the first half, talented all-everything QB Munchie Legaux suffered a gruesome knee injury and had to be carted off the field.
Recently, the University released a bit of a status update on the quarterback.
UC release on Munchie Legaux says the QB will remain hospitalized overnight for what’s only being described as a lower-leg injury.

Initial reports stated that it was an MCL injury, although after being evaluated overnight I would assume that we’ll know more on his official status some time tomorrow.
It certainly was a vicious injury and we wish Legaux a speedy recovery.
