Cincinnati Bearcats Release 2019 Schedule

The Cincinnati Bearcats released their 2019 football schedule on Thursday morning. With six home games at historic Nippert Stadium and six road games, Luke Fickell and the Bearcats will be tested early in the season.


The season opener against the UCLA Bruins will see the Chip Kelly and his squad looking for redemption after falling to the Bearcats last season.

The battle for the Victory Bell will be held at Nippert this season as the Bearcats look to continue their dominance over the RedHawks.

Central Florida comes to the Queen City in early October for a key match-up in American Athletic Conference play.

Other home games include Tulsa, UConn and Temple.


The second game of the season will have Fickell returning to familiar ground as the Bearcats will battle Ohio State in Columbus. Can the Bearcats get a big win over the Big Ten program? If so, look for things to be very interesting for the Bearcats early in the season.

Other road games include Marshall, Houston, East Carolina, South Florida and Memphis.
