The 2012 Fiesta Bowl will be on January 2, after the Rose Bowl.

It had been originally scheduled for January 5.

The Bowl Championship Series had originally decided scheduling games the night of January 2 in case the NFL lockout pushed the season back.

With lockout being resolved and training camps and preseason games currently going on, the NFL schedule will be played as scheduled, the BCS allowed bowls the option of moving games to the January 2 date.

Amid speculation that it would be removed from the Bowl Championship Series alignment, the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Arizona, will remain with the Orange, Rose and Sugar as a National Championship Bowl.

However, it must pay a $1 million fine for apparent illegal campaign contributions and inappropriate spending stemming from violations from former bowl CEO John Junker.

The decision was made by the BCS presidential oversight committee.

University of Cincinnati running back John Goebel (Milford, Michigan/Brother Rice High School), a member of two Big East championship teams and a key part of some of the most successful seasons in school history, has been chosen as the 2010 American Eagle Outfitters Big East Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

The selection was made by the conferences Academic Affairs Committee and is presented on the basis of academic credentials and athletic performance.

He is the first Bearcats player to be chosen as the American Eagle Outfitters Big East Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Goebel, a graduate student, will receive a $2,000 scholarship, which may be applied to graduate or professional studies.

A veteran of 46 career football games, Goebel and Cincinnati have enjoyed its most prosperous run in program history. In 2010, he appeared in 11 games, serving as the Bearcats’ short-yardage specialist. He rushed for 196 yards and three touchdowns while averaging 5.9 yards per carry.

Goebel was limited to seven games in an injury-shortened 2009 season, which saw the Bearcats go undefeated in the regular season on their way to a second straight Big East title and a #3 ranking in the final Bowl Championship Series standings of the season. He enjoyed his best year in 2008, when he rushed for 607 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns on 133 carries, leading the Bearcats to an 11-3 season that included Cincinnati’s first Big East championship.

In the classroom, the Michigan native carries a 4.00 grade-point average in UC’s graduate-level educational leadership program. He is a member of Sigma Sigma, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, the Committee for Athletics Tradition and Spirit and Athletes in Action.
