Cincinnati football hosts SMU Mustangs

Senior day is always emotional. It's a lot for players, coaches, team personnel and fans.

But Saturday will be especially emotional for everyone in and around the University of Cincinnati football program.

Before the Bearcats (10-0, 6-0 American Athletic Conference) host SMU (8-2, 4-2) at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday at Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati will honor somewhere in the neighborhood of 33 seniors. The exact number is hard to nail down given the craziness of the past year and a half.

"There's a lot of guys that have been here for quite a while and have really put this program to where it is today," UC coach Luke Fickell said Tuesday. "I don't know if it's 30, 30-somthing, I don't know how many exactly that is. Roster management in today's day and age is a little bit more difficult to try to exactly figure out based off of what happened last year.
