Bearcats Enter The Top 25 In The Coaches Poll

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Just made it.

The Bearcats have a number by their names once again! The coaches poll has been released and UC sneaks in at #25. UCF comes in at #19 and Louisville is #16. The big news here is that the gap between UCF and UC is not that large. Any UCF loss in their next two( USF, @SMU) and a UC win over Louisville might close that gap. If the Bearcats and Knights were to finish with the same conference record, the BCS bowl bid would be decided by who is ranked higher in the BCS standings because head-to-head does not apply. Needless to say, the Louisville game on December 5th is enormous. Also, Go Bulls. Go Mustangs.
