Two teams from AAC will be squaring off when the Cincinnati Bearcats visit the East Carolina Pirates. The kickoff is set for 3:30 ET.
Cincinnati is coming off of a win and East Carolina is coming off of a win.
The Bearcats opened up as a 14 point favorite and that number has remained the same. I have seen the total stay right around 58.5.
Cincinnati has had a very impressive season so far this year and they seem to have finally gotten some respect from the committee. They come into this game ranked as the #4 team in America.
The Bearcats easily covered and beat the SMU Mustangs on Saturday by a score of 48-14. It is worth noting that it was 48-0 for a very long time.
Quarterback Desmond Ridder kept up his good play in the win. He finished the day 17/23 for 274 yards with 3 touchdown passes. I look for him to have another strong day when he goes against the Pirates on Friday.
Jerome Ford was the leading rusher last week with 20 carries for 82 yards. The leading receiver was Tre Tucker, who had 7 receptions for 114 yards. The offense absolutely shredded apart that defense for SMU.
The defense for this squad has played very well so far this year. They made a statement when they contained SMU as they did. If they are on their game, this unit should be able to have a good day when going against East Carolina.
East Carolina Pirates
A lot of other teams get attention in the AAC, but this East Carolina team has had a solid year. They are not an easy out in that conference.
The Pirates beat Navy on Saturday by a score of 38-35. Playing a service academy is never an easy thing, so that was a good win for this group.
In the win over the Midshipmen, Hoton Ahlers had a good day. He finished the day 27/32 for 405 yards with 3 touchdown passes. Things will be a lot more difficult for him on Friday when he goes against a very stout defense in Cincinnati.
The running game was effective in the win on Saturday. Keaton Mitchell had 18 carries for 94 yards. Tyler Snead was the leading receiver with 5 receptions for 137 yards.
This defense for this team is still an area of concern. It is never a good sign when you allow the Midshipmen to put up those kinds of points on you. This unit will really have their hands full when they try and slow down the Bearcats.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
Based on East Carolina playing better, this is a game that I feel can be better than some people think.
I am going to lay the 14 with Cincinnati in this one.
4* Free Week 13 NCAA Betting Pick:
The goal is very simple for Cincinnati. They have to win and honestly, it should be in convincing fashion when you play teams you are better than.
Even though the Bearcats are now in the top 4, style points still matter. How they win this game is going to matter if they wish to stay there.
I look for Cincy to come out firing in this one. I think they will just be too much for the Pirates to handle.
Give me the Bearcats laying 2 touchdowns on the road in this one.
