The Men’s Basketball team will have a Red & Black Scrimmage the weekend of homecoming before the football team plays

The Cincinnati Bearcats Men’s Basketball team will hit the court the day of homecoming at Fifth Third arena to add the already exciting weekend for Bearcats sports. Bearcats fans will be able to see their football and basketball teams on October 24th.

I know everybody is locked in for Cincinnati’s big game with BYU on ESPN this Friday, but earlier this week we finally got confirmation on what time the football team will be playing homecoming weekend which is October 24th against the Connecticut Huskies at Nippert Stadium and will be at 4:30 eastern time on CBS Sports.

For those that will be in Cincinnati there will be a lot tailgating another festivities going on before the game and during the entire weekend so if you had stuff planned for the weekend of the 24th make sure you do so accordingly.

Today we just got news that Mick Cronin’s boys will be playing their annual Red & Black scrimmage a few hours before Tuberville’s boys hit the gridiron on Saturday. It was just announced that the Men’s basketball team will be playing a scrimmage from 1 pm to 1:45 pm on the 24th. This is big news being that this is the first time both teams have played on campus since the 2013 season.

The Red & Black scrimmage is free to the public so if you already plan to have some fun before the football game you should slide into Fifth Third Arena and see one of the better college basketball programs around. I’m very high on this year’s team so don’t be late to the party.

For the Bearcats sports program as a whole this will be an impactful weekend.
