Cincinnati got a 34-17 win at South Florida on Thursday night, but a pair of Bulls defenders stood out even in the losing effort.

The first is junior DE Jason Pierre-Paul, a JUCO transfer who is making plenty of noise with his size (6-foot-6, 265 pounds), length and strength. Pierre-Paul anticipates the snap and gets off the ball and around the edge quickly, and he also uses his hands and long arms well to disengage from blockers against the run.

Pierre-Paul put his motor and feel for angles on display as well, getting down the line at one point and showing explosiveness in his hips by uncoiling on the ball carrier. He also registered a pair of quarterback hurries and deflected a pass that was intercepted by teammate Nate Allen.
