Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Miami RedHawks Kickoff Time and Television

For the first time since 2005 the Battle For The Victory Bell will air on national television.

The game has been picked up by the CBS Sports Network and will air at 7PM on September 20th. There aren't a ton of benefits to the Bearcats and the AAC's television contract, but this might be one of them. At least for the people who get the network, which is roughly 96 million households according to CBS Sports Network. Take that with a grain of salt.

This year's contest will see the Bearcats matched with a Miami team that, as of this week is 97 weeks removed from their last win. That will probably move to 98 weeks before we get to Bell week as the RedHawks travel to Ann Arbor. Michigan is not good, but they will probably be victors barring something very dramatic from Chuck Martin's squad.

This is going to be homecoming for the Bearcats. Yup, homecoming in the second game of the season for the Bearcats. The parade will start at 4 PM and will presumably be in the same places it was the last time the Bearcats had homecoming downtown.

This is already a weird season, and the Bearcats haven't even played a game yet.
