The Cincinnati Bearcats already know every team they will be facing and what day they will be doing said facing in 2016. There is now a little more clarity about what time one of those specific games will take place, as it was announced that the Sept. 10 matchup with Purdue will take place at noon eastern.

The last game between Cincinnati and Purdue also featured a noon start time and that turned out pretty well, with the Bearcats rolling to a 42-7 victory. Munchie Legaux threw for 145 yards and a score (and two picks) and also rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown as the Bearcats piled up 425 yards of total offense while holding the Boilermakers to 226. It was just the second time the two teams had squared off all-time, with Purdue taking the opening salvo with a 19-14 win in 2001 at Cincinnati. The third rendition of this pairing will be the first played at Purdue.
Last season, Purdue went just 2-10, marking its third-straight season of three or fewer wins. If you're looking for a little more on those pesky Boilermakers, we've got you covered.
