The Cincinnati Bearcats have added the Fordham Rams to their 2012 football schedule, Cincinnati.com has reported.
Cincinnati will host Fordham at Nippert Stadium on Oct. 13, 2012. The Rams are filling the void left on Cincinnati’s schedule when TCU opted to join the Big 12.
Reports also indicate that Cincinnati will open the 2012 season at home against a Big East opponent on Thursday, Sept. 6 or Saturday, Sept. 8. That opponent will likely be Pittsburgh, as the Panthers are the only Big East school with an open date that weekend.
With the addition of Fordham, Cincinnati’s 2012 non-conference schedule is now complete. The Bearcats also host Delaware State (Sept. 15), face Virginia Tech at FedEx Field in Landover, MD (Sept. 29), host Miami, OH (Oct. 6) and travel to face Toledo (Oct. 20).
