BREAKING: #Bearcats announce 2-game football series w/BYU. UC travels to Provo in 2015, BYU comes to Cincinnati in 2016. 1st meeting.— Cincinnati Bearcats (@GoBEARCATS) November 1, 2012
According to the University of Cincinnati, the Bearcats have agreed to a home and home series for the 2015 and 2016 seasons against BYU. In 2015, the Bearcats will travel to Provo, UT in 2015. They will host BYU at Nippert Stadium in 2016. Some have suggested that the home game against BYU could be played at Paul Brown Stadium to allow for a larger crowd, but Cincinnati, for the time being, is done playing games at Paul Brown and will almost certainly be played at Nippert Stadium. The two schools have never met before.
Cincinnati already has games against Miami, Air Force, and Miami (OH) for 2015. With the Big East moving to an eight game conference schedule beginning next season, the Bearcats have now filled their non-conference schedule for that year. There's always the possibility, of course, that BYU is a conference game by the time the 2015 and 2016 seasons roll around.
