Cincinnati Bearcats ranked 19th in BCS -- ahead of Pitt

Louisville head coach wasn't pleased that the Bearcats joined hand-in-hand, circling the Cardinals logo before the game in a team-prayer; a team ritual. "It turned into a situation where a couple of their players came down onto the field and had to be restrained by some of their players," Kelly said. "Steve and I talked about it before the game. We disagreed about the manner in which it was handled but kept it professional and moved on."

The Bearcats moved ahead of Pittsburgh in the BCS and the AP, but not the USA Today. Cincinnati is ranked 19th in the BCS.

This weekend's game between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh will be the biggest of the year. Too bad that we're talking college rather than Pros.
