In a story posted Tuesday by the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bearcats running back Mike Boone says his team can pull off the stunner.

“I’ve got no doubt in my mind that we can go out and shock the world,” Boone said in the Cincinnati Enquirer story. “We’re focused this week. Razor-sharp focus. We just want to come out and execute.”

Likely better than it did in Saturday’s 26-14 victory over Austin Peay, when Cincinnati gave up 224 rushing yards. Michigan, meanwhile, churned out 215 yards on the ground against then-No. 17 Florida in a 33-17 victory.

Michigan and Cincinnati kick off at noon on Saturday at Michigan Stadium.
