Cincinnati Football: Bearcats should be able to stay competitive against conference rival UCF
Cincinnati should be able to keep it competitive this week but it definitely won’t be easy for the defense to contain UCF’s high-powered rushing attack.
Gus Malzahn’s offense currently leads the Big 12 with 227.0 rushing yards per game and is expected to pose a challenge for Bryan Brown’s defense.
Since becoming conference rivals during their time in the AAC throughout the last decade, the teams have split eight previous meetings with a 4-4 record.
The former AAC rivals are scheduled to face off for the ninth time in program history as each team is hoping to earn the first ever victory in Big 12 play!
