The Bearcats six game winning streak has had a lot of positive factors for the program. It always helps to win, always, regardless of the circumstance. One of he biggest and most positive things about the run has been the Bearcats finding their way back into the national polls after a season in the wilderness. When todays polls came out the biggest news for UC is that the team rose 4 places to number 18 in the coaches poll. UC was not quite as fortuneante in the AP poll as they stayed level at 23 for the second week in a row. Keep in mind that the AP poll is important only in the minds of AP voters. It has no bearing on the system. It is fully expected that UC will get enough computer points to move into the top 25 of the BCS when the standings are released tonight. But that is sort of beside the point. The magic number is basically three for the Bearcats.
