The Cincinnati Bearcats will look to rack up more “style points” when heading down to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa to meet the USF Bulls on Friday, November 12th at 6:00 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ESPN2.

The Bearcats (9-0, 5-0 American) are needing to win bigger than they did last week against Tulsa to impress the CFP committee. Senior wide receiver Alec Pierce had five receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown in the win.

The Bulls (2-7, 1-4 American) did their best to hang with Houston last week but ended up falling 54-42 despite two special teams touchdowns. In the loss, junior wide receiver Xavier Weaver had six receptions for 105 yards, a season-high for him. USF gave up more than 10 yards per play with the outcome in doubt, and their defense provided all the resistance of lightly-moistened tissue paper.
