Game Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. UCF Knights

The Bearcats will try to fend off a challenge to their hold on second place in the American Athletic Conference in a matchup of defensive powers. The Cincinnati Bearcats have played every team in the American Athletic Conference except for one. They will remedy that on Thursday when they host the UCF Knights at Fifth Third Arena on Thursday night. Most of the run-ins with league foes have gone well for the Bearcats, who are second in the AAC standings with a 10-2 mark. That has helped elevate their overall record (21-4) and allowed them to maintain their standing in relation to the...

Marquise Copeland: An Appreciation

Marquise Copeland: An Appreciation

Copeland carried the Bearcats on defense in 2017 and then helped lead it to glory in 2018. Those were just two chapters in a brilliant career. The Career Numbers 187 total tackles 8.5 sacks 21.0 tackles for loss 4 passes defended 2 forced fumbles To the untrained eye, among the many talented defensive players on the Cincinnati Bearcats in 2018, defensive tackle Marquise Copeland got a little bit lost in the shuffle. However, the more initiated are aware of just how important he was to the team and the defense both last season and during his entire career at UC. A consensus three-star...

Bracketology Projections Consistent for the Bearcats

Bracketology Projections Consistent for the Bearcats

A relatively light week didn’t make any difference for the Bearcats in terms of their potential spot in the NCAA Tournament. However, their next opponent may be on the rise. Since they only had one game during the last seven days, the Cincinnati Bearcats were unable to make up much ground in the most recent updates to the national rankings. It would stand to reason that the same would hold true for their NCAA Tournament projections. After splitting games against Memphis and Houston before last week’s round of bracketology, the Bearcats actually moved up a little, but a business-like...

Season in Review: Rashad Medaris

Season in Review: Rashad Medaris

Medaris finally got to play a full season with the Bearcats in 2018 and his patience was rewarded with a few big plays. The Numbers 26 receptions 472 yards 3 touchdowns It took a while for Rashad Medaris to finally get a chance to make an impact for the Cincinnati Bearcats. The wideout from Indianapolis, Indiana had to sit out the 2016 season after transferring from Western Illinois. Then, once he was finally able to play, he missed a large chunk of time in 2017 due to an injury. After those two largely lost years, Medaris finally got his chance in 2018. While he didn’t immediately...

Bearcats Back in Coaches Poll, Still Outside AP Top 25

Bearcats Back in Coaches Poll, Still Outside AP Top 25

The Wichita State win was enough for the coaches but not the AP voters. There is clearly still work to do for the Cincinnati Bearcats on the rankings front. While a top 25 designation doesn’t earn a program any trophies, it is at least a distinction worth striving for. The Bearcats fell out of both the AP Top 25 and USA Today/Coaches poll last week, but they made some progress toward a return in today’s updated rankings. They actually found their way back into the top 25 of the Coaches poll or, more accurately, the top 26. With both the Bearcats and Maryland Terrapins receiving 66...

Box Score Deep Dive: Defending Home Court

In one of their better defensive showings of the season, the Bearcats shut the Wichita State Shockers down on Sunday Whether or not it was enough to get them back into the national rankings, Sunday’s win over the Wichita State Shockers was a necessary outcome for the Cincinnati Bearcats and their quest to repeat as American Athletic Conference champions. After stewing in the disappointment of last week’s loss to the first place Houston Cougars, the Bearcats had to wait seven days to put another mark in the win column and maintain their spot in the title chase. Among the many factors...
