Cincinnati Bearcats | AAC (East)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1750), Win Conference (+8800)
SSA Model Pick: None
Luke Fickell can flat out recruit. The problem for Bearcats is that Fickell is only in his second season. This team will make some noise in the AAC, but it won’t be this year.

Win Total Analysis
5 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Medium Confidence)
Brian Kelly and Butch Jones enjoyed success coaching the Bearcats. The wheels started to come off the wagon towards the end of the tenure of Tommy Tuberville, but this is a program that can win. While they only bring back 12 starters from last season, they do return a lot of their production. It’s looking like a 5 or 6 win season for the Bearcats, so the odds of losing this play are minimal.
