CINCINNATI (FOX19) - UC will play in the Birmingham Bowl against Boston College.

The Bearcats came within one touchdown of winning the American Conference championship and a spot in the school’s first New Year’s Six bowl since 2010, but the loss to Memphis means the Bearcats will play Boston College.

The game will be played on Jan. 2 at 3 p.m. at Legion Field in Birmingham.
