Cincinnati football fell to Memphis in the AAC Championship, but still were able to win the Birmingham Bowl 38-6. UC (11-3, 21st) defeated Boston College at Legion Field in Birmingham, AL. QB Desmond Ridder started the game and did not disappoint, obliterating BC (6-7, 70th). He ran for three touchdowns, and 105 yards. Ridder added a touchdown pass for good measure. The game was delayed for 50 minutes due to lightning strikes. At kickoff the Bearcats were favored by seven points. This is second time Cincinnati has won at least 11 games in consecutive season (2008- 2009 seasons).
