OXFORD, Ohio (WKRC) - The Miami RedHawks and the Cincinnati Bearcats will square-off for the 122nd time on Saturday. The contest will begin at 8 p.m. under the lights of Yager Stadium.

The “Battle for the Victory Bell” between Miami and Cincinnati is the longest-lasting collegiate football rivalry west of the Allegheny Mountains, first being played in 1888. It is also the fifth-most played rivalry in Division I (FBS only) with 121 all-time meetings and is the oldest non-conference rivalry in the nation.

Miami controls the all-time series 59-55-7, but the Bearcats have won the last 11 meetings. Miami’s last win against UC was back on Sept. 28, 2005 in a 44-16 win in Oxford.
