Undefeated and No. 7 Cincinnati might be on the edge of the conversation for the College Football Playoff, but all coach Luke Fickell said he is focusing on is getting an American Athletic Conference title for his Bearcats. "We don't talk about outside," Fickell said after his team's 36-33 win last week over UCF. Next up for the Bearcats (8-0, 6-0 AAC) is Saturday's game at Temple, where a win would eliminate the possibility of any messy tie-breaking procedures to get the Bearcats into the AAC Championship Game on Dec. 19.
Temple was getting hammered by UCF Saturday night, but there was one bright spot for central Pennsylvania high school football fans. Former East Pennsboro running back Onasis Neely scored the first touchdown of his college career on a run that cut it to 38-10 earlier in the fourth. Neely is a redshirt freshman with the Owls.
