According to a recent report from CBS Sports insider Jon Rothstein, the Cincinnati Bearcats scheduled a pair of matchups against ACC foe Georgia Tech.

Cincinnati is set to host the non-conference matchup at Fifth Third Arena in November before traveling to Atlanta to take on Georgia Tech the following season.

Georgia Tech is led by first-year head coach and former NBA star Damon Stoudamire, along with backcourt duo Amaree Abram and Kowacie Reeves.

The most recent meeting against Georgia Tech took place in the 1996 NCAA Tournament as Bearcats big man Danny Fortson fueled the way to an 87-70 win.
