Cincinnati native and Bearcats veteran defensive lineman Malik Vann is set to wrap up his career in the regular season finale on Senior Day tonight!

During the home opener against Kennesaw State in his junior year, Vann went down with an upper-body injury and was forced to miss the rest of the season.

Vann has helped the Bearcats go 56-19 throughout his six-year career, securing back to back AAC titles and a historic College Football Playoff berth in 2021.

The Cincinnati product committed to his hometown program more than six years ago and developed into a dynamic contributor on the Bearcats defensive line.

Even though the inaugural Big 12 campaign has been a big disappointment, the Bearcats are looking to cap it off with a critical win over Kansas on Senior Day.

Make sure to preview the upcoming meeting with Kansas including the most recent pregame odds and players to watch heading into kick off this weekend.

Other seniors that are set to partake in the festivities include quarterback Emory Jones, running back Ryan Montgomery, linebacker Daniel Grzesiak and more.

Vann decided to return for a sixth year after applying for a medical redshirt and he will look to cap off his career on a high note with a win over the Jayhawks!

Cincinnati Football: Bearcats should be able to keep it competitive against Kansas

Despite an underwhelming inaugural Big 12 season, the Bearcats should be able to keep it competitive against conference foe Kansas on Saturday evening.

Prior to meeting in the regular season finale, the new Big 12 opponents have played two games in the past with each program winning in their home stadium.

Scott Satterfield’s team should stay within striking distance but it will be difficult to pull off the upset over a quality team in the final game of the year.

The Bearcats first game against Kansas resulted in a 23-18 loss in 1995 before recording a 34-7 victory over the Jayhawks at Nippert Stadium back in 1997.
