The Nittany Lions face the Bearcats of Cincinnati on September 10th at 12pm. The game will be televised regionally through ESPN+.
Like the Rams of USF, this is the Bearcats first year in the newly "redesigned" Big East football conference.
Cincinnati has only 6 returning starters and a freshman at quarterback. Never underestimate an opponent (especially these days), but the Bearcats appear to be in a "building year". They do have quite a few talented freshmen coming into the program; they had 8 recruits playing on the Ohio team in this year's Big 33 game (the same number as Ohio State).
