OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - Malik Clements returned an interception 14 yards into the end zone with 1:42 left as Cincinnati scored 18 points in the fourth quarter and beat Miami (Ohio) 21-17 on Saturday night.

Josh Pasley kicked a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to pull Cincinnati (2-1) to 14-6, and Samuel Sloman’s 37-yard field goal made it 17-6. Hayden Moore threw a 20-yard touchdown strike to Kahlil Lewis, and the pair connected on the 2-point conversion with 2:52 to play to cut the deficit to three.

On the ensuing kickoff, Jaylon Bester returned the ball out of the end zone for just 5 yards. On third-and-2 from its own 13-yard line, Miami (1-2) took a delay of game penalty before Gus Ragland’s pass was picked off by Clements.
