Bearcats crack top 25

Follow Givler on twitter | Follow BearcatReport |

The Week 14 version of the USA Today Coaches Poll is out and the Cincinnati Bearcats have cracked the top 25. Riding a six-game winning streak, the Bearcats (9-2, 6-1) come in at the No. 23 spot this week, receiving 167 points. Texas comes in at No. 24 just 18 points behind Cincinnati which will play its biggest game of the season Thursday night against Louisville.

The Bearcats are still very much alive when it comes to their BCS bowl hopes. A win over Louisville as well as a UCF loss to SMU would likely be enough to send UC to the BCS as the tie-breaker between Cincinnati and UCF would be BCS ranking and it is reasonable to assume a UC win and a UCF loss this weekend would make that a reality. UCF goes on the road to face SMU on Saturday at Noon.

With the Bearcats now in the top 25, that gives the American Athletic Conference three teams in the top 25 of the Coaches poll. The aforementioned UCF Knights are sitting at No. 17 currently and the Bearcats' final regular season opponent, Louisville, comes in just ahead at No. 16.
