10/08/22 – USF Bulls @ Cincinnati Bearcats

Homecoming 2022 has arrived!  We’ll be getting to The Grid early and encourage you to start your morning with a little College Gameday and a warm (or cold) beverage before you head to the parade.

This year’s opponent is one of our longest current foes, with consecutive match-ups since 2003, spanning Conference USA, the Big East, and now the American.  With the Bearcats currently leading the series 12-7, we’re hopeful that this will be the final game against another Florida directional school. Despite many fond memories against the Bulls, including Zach Collaros coming in for an injured Tony Pike and becoming a UC legend, our group was at the 27-65 loss in Tampa in 2015 and would be happy to never have a reminder of that season (and the former coach).  

Only 3 more home games (guaranteed) after this one, so do your part to keep the Nippert winning streak alive!  Go Bearcats!!

Tailgate info: 

What:  Cincinnati Bearcats host the USF Bulls.

When:  Saturday, October 8, 2022.  Kickoff time is 2:30pm, the trailer will be set up by 9:30am and we will begin cleaning up/tearing down around 1:30pm to allow plenty of time for everyone to get to their seats prior to kickoff.
