Its Official, we play Cincinnati

OU must be careful with the bearcats, NOT

The University of Cincinnati and Oklahoma have signed a contract to play each other in a home-and-home football series, beginning in 2008 when the Bearcats will travel to Norman to face the Sooners on Sept. 6.

Oklahoma, which plays in the Big 12 Conference, will return the game on Sept. 25, 2010 at Paul Brown Stadium.

UC and Oklahoma have never played each in football.

“If we expect Bearcat football to be a national presence and compete in the BCS, we need to play nationally recognized programs,” said UC coach Brian Kelly. “This is an opportunity for UC to play at the highest level and host a BCS program in an NFL venue.”
