UC preps for Louisville

By Rontina McCann – bio | email

CINCINNATI (FOX 19) -- UC is gearing up for the first BIG EAST game of the 2010 football season. Coach Butch Jones says he is looking to his upperclassmen to lead by example in defending the team's back-to-back conference championships.

The Bearcats travel to Louisville for a Friday night game that is billed as the battle for the Keg of Nails. This the 50th anniversary of the rivalry. Cincinnati leads the all-time series 27-21-1 over Louisville.

Cincinnati hasn't lost a BIG EAST conference game since mid-season 2008. "It is a big game in their stadium, our maturity has to be on display," Jones said. "Our older kids have to step up and go play in a venue and handle the adversity that is associated with going on the road and playing in that type of environment."

The team will be without running back Darrin Williams another week. He was out for the Miami (OH) game last week with an ankle injury. In a press conference with Jones Tuesday, he said Williams might make it back for Syracuse at the end of the month, but wasn't sure yet.

The battle for the Keg of Nails isn't the only big showdown in the conference. It starts Thursday in Morgantown, W.Va., as West Virginia hosts South Florida. Saturday Pittsburgh travels to 4-1 Syracuse.
