More on UC playing Virginia Tech

| No TrackBacks
The reason UC wanted to play the 2012 Virginia Tech game in Landover, Md., at FedEx Field - AKA as the home of the Washington Redskins - was simple. Closer to Washington D.C., closer to the top-notch recruits who fill that area of the country, closer to making UC a nationally-recognized brand.

 

"Clearly, there's some recruiting advantage in playing that metropolitan area that's a pretty rich recruiting area," Brian Kelly said. "It's pretty important to go in that direction. There are a lot of reasons, but the one that I think that's important to us is to be in that marketplace. We need this kind of exposure."

 

Considering the Bearcats also will travel to Ohio State in 2012, that's shaping up to be a pretty tough road schedule, eh?

 

"Sure is," Kelly said. "We're not looking to take a step back. We want to continue to push this program forward."

 

Along with the Ohio State and Virginia Tech games in 2012, here's a sampling of which nationally-relevant squads UC will face in the next few years:

 

2010 - vs. Oklahoma at PBS

2011 - at Tennessee, vs. N.C. State at Nippert

2013 - at Illinois

2014 - at Ohio State
