The University of Cincinnati football team will face off against Syracuse in the Carrier Dome at noon in a game to be televised by ESPNU, the BIG EAST office announced Monday.
The two schools will meet for the 10th time with UC holding a 5-4 edge in the all-time series. The Orange lead 3-2 in games played at the Carrier Dome, but UC has won two straight in Syracuse and four straight overall in the series.
The Bearcats (6-0, 2-0 BIG EAST) are ranked at No. 5 in this week's Associated Press poll and the first Bowl Championship Series standings while sitting No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches poll. All three rankings are the best in school history. UC's previous best BCS ranking was No. 12 in the final 2008 BCS standings.
