Bearcats make history with No. 3 ranking in AP Poll
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Coming off a 52-3 win over Temple on Friday night, the Cincinnati Bearcats jump two spots to number three in the latest Associated Press poll.
It’s the highest AP ranking in program history for the undefeated Bearcats.

The entire top 15:
1. Georgia, 2. Iowa, 3. Cincinnati, 4. Oklahoma, 5. Alabama, 6. Ohio State, 7. Penn State, 8. Michigan, 9. Oregon, 10. Michigan State, 11. Kentucky, 12. Oklahoma State, 13. Ole Miss, 14. Notre Dame, 15. Coastal Carolina
The Bearcats (5-0, 1-0) are back home on Saturday to host Central Florida (3-2, 1-1) at noon.
