Cincinnati Bearcats Football:UC narrowly beats ECU, continues hunt for 3rd straight AAC title

If Cincinnati wins its final two regular-season games, it will earn a berth in the AAC Championship Game for the fourth straight season.

If the two-time defending AAC champion Bearcats go on to win their third straight AAC title, they will play in the Cotton Bowl, part of this season’s New Year’s Six bowl lineup. The game will be played Jan. 2 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where the Bearcats lost to No. 1 Alabama in last season’s College Football Playoff semifinal.

But none of that will matter if Cincinnati doesn’t win at Temple on Saturday (4 p.m. ESPNU).

“The scary thing about them is they played their best ball in November, and that’s something we’re proud of,” said Bearcats senior wide receiver and captain Tre Tucker.

Cincinnati has been 3-8 when Temple hosts Cincinnati. The Bearcats last visited Philadelphia on Oct. 20, 2018, in a 17-24 overtime loss to the Hooters. Tucker was a senior at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in northeastern Ohio at the time.

“I know Temple has been a problem for us,” he said. “Even before I came here. I remember my senior year,[the Bearcats]were undefeated, and they went out there to play Temple on the road and they lost. That was one of their only losses that year outside of UCF. Temple is always a tough place to play, they’re always a tough team. So, I think everyone will be on high alert. Obviously, we know what we’re going to get next week (November 25 at Nippert Stadium No. 21 Tulane University), but this week is just as important just because of the way they play and who they are. So everyone is going to make sure they focus and have a good practice week.”
