East Hartford — Brendon Kay threw two touchdown passes to Travis Kelce, and caught one from the big tight end on a trick play as Cincinnati beat UConn 34-17 on Saturday.

The win gives the Bearcats (9-3) a share of the Big East championship, along with Louisville, Rutgers and Syracuse, all of which ended the season with 5-2 conference records. Cincinnati’s two conference losses came to the Cardinals and Scarlet Knights and the Bearcats were not in the running for the conference’s Bowl Championship Series bowl berth.

Kelce caught five balls for 69 yards and the two scores. Kay completed 19 of his 29 passes for 245 yards and the two scores.

Chandler Whitmer threw for 264 yards and a touchdown for UConn (5-7, 2-5), before leaving the game with a head injury in the third quarter. UConn’s season comes to an end, but the Huskies would have been bowl eligible if they won the game.
