The Cincinnati Bearcats will host the Delaware State Hornets in 2012, according to DSU’s 2012 football schedule released today.
The two schools will meet at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati on September 15, 2012. It will be their first ever meeting.
Delaware State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the FCS. They finished the 2011 season 3-8.
Cincinnati now has four non-conference games scheduled for 2012:
- 09/15 – Delaware State
- 09/29 – Virginia Tech (at Landover, MD)
- 10/06 – Miami (OH)
- 10/20 – at Toledo
The Bearcats will likely need a fifth game with the likely departure of West Virginia to the Big 12 for the 2012 season. A sixth non-conference game could also be scheduled if Cincinnati only has six conference games.
Anyone at FBS know if the Bearcats are going to get a 12th game? Any rumors, or are they going to be stuck with 11. Not sure what the holdup was with scheduling a 5th non-conference game. You cant blame this one on WVU as Temple bailed the BE out.
Saw something on Twitter last week that UC was talking with Fordham. Haven’t heard anything else.
