Will Houston Win Get Bearcats Into Top 25?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati has won six straight games against increasingly competent competition. After last weeks demolition of Rutgers the Bearcats moved just outside the top 25 in both the coaches and Harris polls.

The question is how much will the Houston win, the Bearcats sixth straight, goose their ranking with the voters. Here are the current results of the 12 teams that received more votes than Cincinnati in either the Harris or the Coaches Poll. Losses from two or three of these teams are a must for the Bearcats to move into the top 25.

  • Northern Illinois -- Beat Toledo 35 - 17
  • Louisville -- Beat Memphis 24 - 17
  • Oklahoma -- Beat Kansas State 41 - 31
  • USC -- At Colorado 9:30 PAC 12 Network
  • Ole Miss -- Vs. Missouri 7:45 ESPN
  • Duke -- Beat Wake Forest 28 - 21
  • UCF -- Beat Rutgers 41 - 17
  • Arizona State -- at #14 UCLA 7 Fox
  • Minnesota -- Losing to #19 Wisconsin in 3rd on ESPN
  • Georgia -- vs Kentucky 7 ESPNU
  • Notre Dame -- Beating BYU 20 - 7 in 3rd on NBC
  • Texas -- vs BYE on Longhorn Network

So go Buffs, Tigers, Bruins, Badgers, Wildcats, Cougars and BYE. Daddy needs a win or two.
