The University of Cincinnati football team earned a spot in the latest Associated Press Poll, coming in at No. 25.
UC defeated No. 18 University of Central Florida, 27-24, Friday evening at Nippert Stadium. The Knights fell out of the rankings this week.
This is the first time the Bearcats (4-1, 1-0 The American) have been ranked in the AP Poll or Coaches Poll this season. The last time they were included in the AP Poll was the end of last season (No. 24) after defeating Virginia Tech in the Military Bowl.
