It's Cincinnati's homecoming week and the Bearcats (3-3) will matchup with the 3-4 UConn Huskies for the occasion. Cincinnati, having lost last week to BYU, 38-24, on the road, is looking to get back on track in a disappointing season. UConn enters today's game after falling to USF, 28-20.
Cincinnati will reportedly have week-by-week quarterback competitions, so the starter has yet to be announced. The Huskies are led by Bryant Shirreffs who has 1,636 yards passing on the season to go with 252 on the ground.
Playing back in front of the home Nippert crowd will be nice for the Bearcats, but UConn has played good teams to the wire a couple times this season already.
