Cincinnati Houston Competing For More Than A Game

The Universtiy of Cincinnati and the University of Houston are not only competing on the field Thursday night but they are also competing to escape the American Athletic Conference and join the Big 12 Conference.

Hoiston #6 defeated Big 12 big shot Oklahoma 35-23 in the season opener and demolished Lamar 42-0 last week.  Cincinnati struggled against UT- Martin in a 28-7 come-from-behind win, then shocked Purdue on the road, 38-20.

The Big !2 has 10 teams, four from the state of Texas, Baylor, Texas, Texas Christian and Texas Tech.

Houston would make the fifth and Cincinnati would open up an untapped TV market for the Conference.

The leaders of the Conference are planning to meet early next month to decide whether to expand or to add two teams or four teams.
