15 Bearcats Make Big East All-Academic Team

Tony Carvitti joins fourteen other University of Cincinnati football members on the Big East All-Academic Team.

Several members on the University of Cincinnati football squad earned honors from the Big East Conference being named to the All-Academic Football Team.  With a total of 80 student-athletes named to the squad, UC followed only West Virginia in the total number of players to make the squad.


One of the biggest judges of how a program is doing is if student athletes are earning their education while performing on the football field.  The University of Cincinnati is showing you can build a strong football program while at the same time have it's student-athletes excel in the classroom.


To be recognized by the Big East players must have earned a letter, completed a minimum of two semesters of academic work and posted a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.  This year marks the 15th consecutive season the Big East has honored its student-athletes with an academic team.
