After taking down SMU last weekend, Cincinnati will return to action on Saturday afternoon at UCF. The rivalry matchup is scheduled to kick off in Orlando at 3:30 PM and will be available to stream on multiple platforms including ESPN and fuboTV.

Even though UCF is coming off a 34-13 loss against East Carolina, the winner will have an inside track to reaching and potentially hosting the AAC title game. It’s arguably the biggest game of the season as the Bearcats look to stay unbeaten in conference play.

According to 506 Sports, the ESPN broadcast crew is scheduled to be Mark Jones and Robert Griffin III with Quint Kessenich on the sideline. The same crew covered Cincinnati’s season-opening loss against Arkansas and the matchup at SMU last Saturday.

  • Date: Saturday, October 29 at 3:30 PM
  • Location: FBC Mortgage Stadium in Orlando
  • TV Broadcast: ESPN and fuboTV
  • All-Time Series: Bearcats (4-3)

Despite a scoreless fourth quarter and an ongoing problem with penalties, the Bearcats survived an upset at SMU and extended its 19-game win streak over AAC opponents. It’s hard to imagine that level of performance will be enough to get past the Knights.

Cincinnati opened as 1-point underdogs at UCF for the first time since the season opener at Arkansas. Most experts are expecting a competitive matchup as both teams vie for first place with the conference championship game just over five weeks away.
