The Cincinnati Bearcats lost a key Big East Conference game on Saturday afternoon to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 10-3 at Nippert Stadium in front of 34,526 fans.

The Bearcats could only muster a 36-yard field goal with :11 seconds left in the game from PK Tony Miliano.

DB Camerron Cheatham was one of five Game Captains for the Bearcats and he had a solid game.

The senior from Kalamazoo, Michigan accounted for 7 tackles, 6 solo and intercepted a pass in the first quarter at the UC 9-yard line. It marked Cheatham’s third interception of the season and seventh of his career.

Cheatham’s INT was one of two on the day by the UC defense. It marked the third time this season that the Bearcats have registered multiple interceptions in a game. Cincinnati also recorded two interceptions in the Rutgers Red Zone in the first half of play. Of UC’s nine interceptions entering the game, two had come in the important Red Zone.

 

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.

Navy accepts invite to join Big East in football

 

The Navy Midshipmen football program has accepted the Big East Conference’s invitation to join the league starting in 2015.

The United States service academy has been an independent in football since the program’s inception in 1879.

In December, the Big East added Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members and Southern Methodist, Houston and Central Florida in all sports. Those three schools will start play in 2013.

Yancy Gates, Octavius Ellis and Cheikh Mbodj will each be suspended for a total of six games and Ge’Lawn Guyn for one game. The suspensions will take effect immediately and will be concurrent with the NCAA-standard one-game mandated suspensions that would be applied to Gates and Mbodj for ejections from the game for fighting.

“After reviewing all available video and giving due deliberation to the seriousness of this behavior, we have decided to take these actions,” said UC athletic director Whit Babcock. “We want to deal with this in a prompt and direct manner and send the message that we will not tolerate this from those who have the privilege of representing the University of Cincinnati.”

“We have advised the BIG EAST Conference of our decision and the measures we’re taking. I’m thankful for the full support of (UC) President (Gregory H.) Williams and (UC men’s basketball head coach) Mick Cronin.”

“Further, I want to apologize to our students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as to our fans and community. We hold our student-athletes to a very high standard and take very seriously the role that our entire department plays in reflecting the overall image of this great university. We will continue to work diligently to represent the Bearcat family and the Cincinnati community in a first-class manner. There will be zero tolerance for a repeat of this behavior.”
