Brian Kelly who helped Central Michigan to a bowl game took over the Bearcats football program just a few weeks prior to the International Bowl for the departed Mark Dantonio didn't make too many changes in the days leading up to the game. While he added a few wrinkles, the new Bearcats head coach knew he had a team capable of winning their bowl game and used the prep time to see what he would have returning in the spring.
In a hard fought battle the Bearcats held on and defeated the Broncos 27-24 in front of 26,717 fans with a large amount of Bearcat fans in attendance.
Dominick Goodman was the game's MVP with 109 receiving yards on seven catches and 2 touchdowns while Dominic Ross lead the Bearcats defense with 11 tackles and John Bowie registered a 25-yard interception return for a touchdown.
The win moved Cincinnati to 5-4 all-time in bowl games and gave the team an overall record of 8-5 for the 2006 season.
