Saturday December 7th will be a historic day for the Cincinnati Bearcats. It could be historic for good reasons or bad.
At 3:30 on ABC, the football team, for the second week in a row, plays at Memphis. The Bearcats lost last Friday 34-24, to finish the regular season 10-2. They return to Memphis to play in the AAC Championship Game for the first time in school history.
Simultaneously, at 5:00 pm, the men’s basketball team will play their annual Crosstown Shootout game against Xavier. This will be first year head coach John Brannen’s first taste of the rivalry, which has seen Cincinnati win two of the last three years.
