No. 23 Cincinnati is starting redshirt senior Ben Bryant at quarterback today at No. 19 Arkansas, sources told ESPN.
The game is at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Bryant began his career at Cincinnati, where he backed up Desmond Ridder for three seasons. He then transferred to Eastern Michigan, where he starred last year, and then transferred back to Cincinnati to compete for the starting job this season.
Bryant beat out Evan Prater, a redshirt sophomore who is one of the highest-regarded recruits in Cincinnati history. Prater was an ESPN 300 recruit in the class of 2020.
