11/09/19 – UConn Huskies @ Cincinnati Bearcats
The time has come to bid farewell to former Big East & American Conference foes, the Connecticut Huskies. While the football Bearcats have owned the series (12-3), UConn has been the school that we have been able to most closely relate to over the years, particularly as a fellow forgotten step child in the conference realignment mess over the last ~10 years.
It’s Homecoming, UC’s official bicentennial celebration, and another opportunity to secure our first AAC East championship (with a lot more at stake, including a potential home AAC championship game and a New Year’s Six berth), so there are PLENTY of reasons to come out…if you need more, how about an opportunity attend for free?
Lots of recent debate about #Bearcats football attendance, so we'll kickoff the grassroots effort to fill Nippert on 11/9:
For every 50 RTs this tweet gets, we'll purchase & give away 1 pair of tickets.
