Football Heads To Oxford To Face Miami (Ohio) For The 118th Time
The University of Cincinnati football team closes out non-conference play against longtime rival Miami (Ohio) on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET inside Yager Stadium. The two schools play annually for the Victory Bell, one of two traveling trophies on the Bearcats schedule.

SCOUTING MIAMI (OHIO)
Miami enters the game 0-2, falling in road games at Marshall (52-14) and Kentucky (41-7). A pair of QBs have played, with leading rusher Austin Gearing (27.5 ypg) and leading passer Austin Boucher (94.0 ypg). Kent Kern has paced the defense, averaging 7.5 tackles per game. The RedHawks entered the season with 12 seniors, 14 juniors, 23 sophomores and 51 freshmen.

THE SERIES
Saturday marks the 118th time the two schools will meet in the second-oldest NCAA FBS rivalry. Miami (Ohio) leads the all-time series 59-51-7 but UC has won seven-straight games, including a 52-14 win in Nippert Stadium a year ago.

THE COACHES
Tommy Tuberville, a 17-year head coaching veteran was named the 41st football head coach at the University of Cincinnati on Dec. 8, 2012. Widely regarded as one of the top coaches and recruiters in the collegiate game, comes to Cincinnati after three years at Texas Tech. Tuberville holds a 132-78 career record with head coaching stops at Texas Tech, Auburn and Ole Miss.

Don Treadwell a former UC assistant, is in his third season as the head coach at Miami (OH). He has a career mark of 8-17. The 1982 Miami (OH) grad spent the previous four seasons as the offensive coordinator for former UC head coach Mark Dantonio at Michigan State. Treadwell, the sixth RedHawks alum to hold the job, was a wideout for Miami from 1978-81.

CONSTRUCTION COMING SOON
Nippert Stadium will undergo an $86-million renovation and expansion starting in December of 2013. The 98-year old facility will feature a new five-story west side pavilion with suites and patio and club seats as well as concourse, restroom and concession enhancements on both the west and east sides. The capacity will increase to 40,000. UC will play off site in 2014 at Paul Brown Stadium downtown and return to Nippert in 2015, the 100th anniversary of original construction on the stadium.
