2018 Cincinnati Bearcats Season Preview
Cincinnati is entering a pivotal season, one where if the offense puts it together they can and should challenge for the ACC East. To do this the Bearcats need to continue putting points on the board, and they have the talent, with wide receiver Devin Gray heading the charge. After leading the Bearcats last year with 860 yards and 58 catches, the former JUCO transfer standout is poised for a big senior season. Cincy did well when scoring 27 or more points per game. They were 4-1 when hitting this magic number as opposed to 0-7 when scoring under. On the defensive end Cortez Broughton, defensive tackle notched 42 tackles last year, 5 of which were for a loss plus 2.5 sacks. A potential All-AAC first team performer, alongside linebacker Kevin Mouhon and fellow tackle Marquise Copeland, the Bearcat run defense needs stops to get the Cincinnati offense back on the field. QB Hayden Moore is a talent, and if he can get Gray and his receiving corps clicking, watch out. Whether you are planning on cheering on Cincinnati at Nippert Stadium or supporting the Bearcats on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017 Cincinnati Bearcats tickets, including home and away games.

Initially dominated by Cincinnati, this rivalry has evolved into one of the fiercest games every season. The two squads battle for the “Keg of Nails” which dates back to 1929. This rivalry has spanned over three different conferences and with Louisville entering the ACC, fans from both schools hope that it continues into the future.
Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh
The “River City Rivalry” is one of the most exciting matchups to emerge in recent memory.

The Bearcats went 7-1 in the AAC and ended as co-champions with Memphis and UCF. Cincinnati will look to stand alone atop the American Athletic Conference in 2015 and will lean on the arm of Gunner Kiel to get them there. Kiel is one of the most dangerous passers in the country, and threw for more than 3,200 yards a year ago. Where the 2015 Bearcats offense will look to improve is in the running game, where Cincinnati struggled for much of last season. There are a number of great home games on the Cincinnati Bearcats 2015 schedule, including Miami, UConn, and UCF.
2014 Cincinnati Football Preview
The Cincinnati Bearcats football team did not miss a beat in Tommy Tuberville’s first season as head coach. The Bearcats won 9 games and earned a trip to their 5th straight bowl game. Cincinnati will look to take the next step in 2014 and win an American Athletic Conference championship. For the Bearcats to achieve that, they will need excellent play from transfer quarterback Gunner Kiel. Kiel inherits one of the top offenses in the AAC and will have plenty of help from running back Hosey Williams and senior receiver Shaq Washington. Cincy has a number of exciting games for 2014. In the non-conference the Bearcats travel to the Columbus to take on Ohio State on September 27th, and travel to Miami on October 11th. Key games for Cincinnati’s AAC championship chances will be October 4th against Memphis, November 13th against East Carolina, and December 6th against Houston.
2013 Cincinnati Football Preview
Since 2006, the Cincinnati Bearcats have gone 65-26. They have also had a share at the Big East title in four of the last five seasons. However, Tommy Tuberville is now the 5th head coach in that span. The turnover at the top has become as consistent as the winning on the field. As other coaches move on to other opportunities, Cincinnati continues to be one of the better football teams in the country that no one talks about. The Bearcats have won 10 games in back-to-back seasons and will return all five of their starting offensive lineman as they look to replace their running back and top two receivers from 2012. Tuberville will need to decide on a quarterback and retool a defense that lost many starters. In the first season under Tuberville, the Bearcats welcome Temple and Louisville in the newly formed American Athletic Conference.
2011 Cincinnati Football Preview
A year after winning back-to-back Big East titles, Cincinnati struggled under the guidance of first year coach Butch Jones. The Bearcats limped to a 4-8 finish and won just two games in their conference. The team looks to rebound, and they certainly have the offensive talent to do so. If the ‘Cats defense can hold up, there's no reason why they can't return to the postseason.
The offense, which scored a conference-best 27.1 points per game in 2010, will be led by senior quarterback Zach Collaros, who is equally adept at running as he is at passing. He will be flanked by talented running back Isaiah Pead. If Collaros can limit his interceptions when throwing to receivers DJ Woods and Kenbrel Thompkins, the offense will be in good shape.
The defense was questionable at times last season, yielding 28 points and more than 369 yards per game. Much of that squad is back this year, and coaches are hoping that another year of experience will shore up any holes they had. The defensive line should be strong under defensive end Walter Stewart and nose tackle John Hughes, but the secondary may still have to pick it up to be effective enough to take Cincinnati farther up the polls in 2011.
2010 Cincinnati Football Preview
In the upcoming college football season, it will be difficult for the Cincinnati Bearcats to top the dominate season that they pulled together in 2009. Last year, the team swept the Big East Conference for a first place finish and finished the year 12-1 overall.
The Bearcats ended the season third in the BCS standings and fourth in the coaches' poll, and new head coach Butch Jones will surely be looking to improve those small numbers this fall. While the team lost their quarterback to the NFL, leading rusher Isaiah Pead and star receiver Armon Binns will be looking to carry the team this year. Last season the pair scored 20 touchdowns between them.
Six weeks into the Bearcats' season, the team will square off on the gridiron at home against their oldest rivals, Miami University of Ohio, and the winner will be awarded the traditional Victory Bell. The very next week, Cincinnati will travel to the home turf of another rival, the University of Louisville, to battle in the annual Keg of Nails game.
While the team only joined the Big East in 2005, the Bearcats are out to show that they own the conference.
2009 Cincinnati Football Preview
Cincinnati used to be known as a basketball school, but Bearcats football coach Brian Kelly is doing his part to turn them into a football school. The Bearcats head into the 2009 fresh off their first conference championship in football since 2002. Cincy's 11 wins in 2008 represent one of the best football teams in the history of their program. Now the challenge will be to follow up on that wildly successful season in the fast improving Big East Conference. If Kelly can get the Bearcats offense clicking again, then expect big things from them in 2009.
