Ready for a little college football trivia? Did you know that the Victory Bell is given out to the winner of the Miami (OH) vs. Cincinnati game every year.
Existing since a draw on December 8, 1888, the series is led by Miami (OH) 59-54-7, though the Bearcats have been dominant of late.
On Saturday the two teams will meet once again, with the Redhawks looking to come away with their first win of the season after dropping two close ones to Western Kentucky and Eastern Illinois.
Miami (OH) has had a tough time this year. After being blown out by Iowa in a Week 1 contest, they suffered a loss to Eastern Illinois and Western Kentucky.
QB Billy Bahl has been pretty efficient this season and RB Alonzo Smith has been serviceable, so the RedHawks may have an opportunity to penetrate a Cincinnati defense that looked extremely shaky in the fourth quarter against Houston, surrendering four TDs and blowing a chance for a big upset on the road.
If Miami wants to come away with an upset, they’ll need to get some rhythm going on offense.
Oh, Cincinnati you were so close. Up 16-12 with just under 15 minutes to go the Bearcats let allowed Greg Ward Jr. to run wild while also throwing a crucial two INTs with the game winding down, each coming within just 7 seconds of each other.
But this doesn’t mean Cincinnati was completely outclassed by a powerful Houston team.
In fact their defense was very impressive throughout the contest and should feel confident heading into the rest of 2016.
QB Hayden Moore has been slinging it around all 2016 so far, completing 61 of 103 passes for 785 yards, 7 TD and 3 INT.
RB Tion Green, meanwhile, has 164 yards on the ground in 2016 and is supplemented by Mike Boone, who has 142 yards rushing with a TD.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Cincinnati -20.5
Cincinnati was so close to spoiling Houston’s 2016 campaign.
They may have faltered late in the contest but did look very good defensively for much of the game, likely giving them the confidence they need to make a decent run as they get set for the rest of the American Athletic Conference after a matchup against MAC opponent Miami (OH).
It may not be a high-scoring affair but Cincinnati will easily come away with this one.
