Cincinnati to start home and home with UCLA

After the dust settled from Malik Vann committing to the Cincinnati football program, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports dropped a bomb of information stating Cincinnati will start a home and home with UCLA next year. Cincinnati will be heading to Westwood (UCLA) to play the team who beat them in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament (79-67), but the kicker is UCLA will be back to play in the “New” Fifth Third Arena in 2018-19 which is going to be a non-conference game that all Bearcat fans will have circled.

This is a great move for the Bearcats out of conference schedule and it will be build a lot of excitement for the renovated arena. Will we get any new LaVar Ball quotes? (LiAngelo Ball will be a freshman next year, but I doubt he makes the Lonzo effect)

Who else will the Bearcats add to their schedule?

Managing Editor of Bearcat Insider, I've been on the BCI team the last couple of years. I made the final four in the Biggest Big East Fan contest in 2011, I covered UC also on Cincy on the Prowl. I'm just a lefty trying to get buckets in this game called life Van Exel style.
