UCF Hosts Cincinnati In AAC Matchup of Top Touted Contenders

UCF Hosts Cincinnati In AAC Matchup of Top Touted Contenders

This was supposed to be a potential playoff season for Central Florida. Instead, UCF was burned by their lack of a reliable defense. Betting on College Football losses to Tulsa and Memphis illustrated that. So too is the American Athletic Conference title now dicey. Instead, it’s Cincinnati in the driver’s seat for the AAC championship. Consider the Bearcats have the one thing that UCF lacks. Cincinnati boasts one of the best and toughest defenses in the country. UC coach Luke Fickell is one of the hottest coaching brands in the country. He’ll be in demand with the coaching carousel.
