In former Ohio State assistant coach Luke Fickell's second season as Cincinnati's head coach, the Bearcats improved to 7-1 on Saturday in a game that ended in spectacular fashion.

Cincinnati safety James Wiggins intercepted a pass by SMU quarterback Ben Hicks and returned it 86 yards to the other end zone for a walk-off interception return for a touchdown to give the Bearcats a 26-20 win over the Mustangs.

The Bearcats suffered their only loss of the season last weekend against Temple, but have won all of their other games this season after going 4-8 in Fickell's first year leading the program.
