12/27/2012 - Scouting the Cincinnati running game: The Bearcats weren't sure what they could muster on the ground after Isaiah Pead graduated to the NFL. But senior RB George Winn delivered, in more ways than one. Winn, who surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in week 10, finished with 1,235 yards and 12 touchdowns. His quiet leadership is in direct contrast to Pead's flamboyant style. But Winn and Ralph David Abernathy IV provide a foundation for the Bearcats' offense that helps jumpstart the passing game. Unlike their recent teams, which were more pass-first out of spread formations, this year's Bearcats have proven to be more efficient when they establish the run. QB Brendon Kay is an adept runner, and Abernathy is a big-play threat in space. - The Sports Xchange

12/10/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG EAST SECOND TEAM (COACHES): RB George Winn, Cincinnati, Sr., Southfield, Mich./Detroit Jesuit, has been selected Second Team All-BIG EAST Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. Winn led the league in rushing for most of the campaign, falling to the No. 2 spot after the 12th and final regular season game. He rushed 227 times for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The senior had five games rushing over 100 yards, including a season- and career-best 165 yards on 30 carries for three touchdowns against Syracuse. Winn also added 12 receptions for 116 yards and totaled eight tackles on special teams. His 1,204 rushing yards ranks as the seventh-best single-season effort in UC history while his 12 TDs ranks tied for fourth with former standout Isaiah Pead (2011). - Cincinnati football

11/26/2012 - WEEK 13 BIG EAST HONOR ROLL: George Winn, Sr., RB, Cincinnati, Southfield, Mich.,...Rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries in a 27-10 win against USF. - BIG EAST football

11/07/2012 - BIG EAST: NFL DRAFT PROSPECT WATCH - WEEK 10: Keep an eye on: RB George Winn, 5-11, 210, Cincinnati: Why you should watch him? Winn might be the most complete back in the conference and one of the most improved players in the nation. Winn always had the talent, he has just spent the most of his career stuck behind Isaiah Pead. With Pead now moved on to the St. Louis Rams, Winn has had a breakout season. On Monday, Winn received Big East Offensive Player of the Week honors after rushing for 165 yards and 3 TDs in a critical victory over Syracuse. For good measure, Winn added a momentum-building 37-yard pass on a trick play. Bearcats coach Butch Jones struggles to run out of compliments for the powerful back. Jones describes Winn as a punishing blocker, a stellar special teams performer and one of his hardest workers in practice. Winn could emerge as a sleeper come April. Season stats (eight games): 914 rushing yards on 153 carries (5.97 yards per carry), 112.1 rushing yards per game, 7 TDs. Player ranking: Winn is ranked No. 526 overall and is the No. 42 ranked RB in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings. Up next: Winn faces a Temple defense on Saturday that has allowed 42.3 points per game in its last three contests. The Owls have allowed more than 160 rushing yards per game. - Matt Rybaltowski, CBSSports.com

10/08/2012 - WEEK 6 BIG EAST HONOR ROLL: George Winn, Sr., RB, Cincinnati, Southfield, Mich.,...Rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in a 52-14 win against Miami (Ohio). - BIG EAST football

09/15/2012 - George Winn ran for a career-high 147 yards on Saturday night, helping Cincinnati overcome six turnovers -- four of them by quarterback Munchie Legaux -- for a 23-7 victory over Delaware State. Cincinnati (2-0) didn't turn the ball over during an opening 34-10 win over Pittsburgh, but repeatedly wasted scoring chances by getting careless against the Hornets (1-2). Legaux threw an interception in the end zone and fumbled at the Delaware State 11-yard line on the first two drives of the second half. He also underthrew a long pass that was picked off, and fumbled when he was hit while trying to pass. Legaux was 20 of 27 for 208 yards with a pair of touchdowns to go with the four turnovers. Receiver Anthony McClung fumbled at the 1-yard line after a long catch-and-run to thwart another chance. The Hornets had played only two games previously against schools currently in the Bowl Championship Series, beating Gerry Faust's Akron team 52-26 in 1987 and losing at Michigan 63-6 in 2009. Nick Elko, who entered the game leading the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with 227 yards passing per game, was 18 of 36 for 151 yards with an interception and two sacks. - AP Sports

09/06/2012 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: QB Munchie Legaux says he's more comfortable with the offense now that he has a full training camp under his belt and the experience of five starts last season which produced mix results. Legaux has plenty of weapons at his disposal. Leading rusher Isaiah Pead is gone to the NFL, but there's plenty of athleticism within the running back committee of George Winn, Jameel Poteat, and Ralph David Abernathy IV. The receiving corps is deep led by Kenbrell Thompkins. - The Sports Xchange

08/08/2012 - CINCINNATI BREAKOUT STAR: George Winn's 69-yard TD run in the Liberty Bowl victory over Vanderbilt provided a glimpse of the senior rusher's play-making ability. Now, with Big East offensive player of the year Isaiah Pead gone, Winn earned the starting tailback job in spring camp. Winn was UC's third-leading rusher last season with 219 yards and two TDs. Winn, along with sophomore Jameel Poteat and junior Ralph David Abernathy IV will help the Bearcats cushion the loss of Pead. But it's Winn's time to shine. - The Sports Xchange
