Facilities

- Nippert Stadium: Although the Big East's smallest venue, Nippert Stadium has been called the "Wrigley of College Football." It is the fifth oldest stadium still in use, and the fourth oldest playing site. The field, named for early UC football supporter Arch Carson, was in place as early as 1905 when it was the southern end of Burnet Woods Park. The main U of the stadium was completed in 1924 after the death of Jimmy Nippert from injuries sustained in the annual Thanksgiving Miami game. The funds necessary for its completion were donated by James Gamble in memory of his grandson. Plans are in the works to ultimately expand the stadium to include more premium seating options as well as seats. Nippert is in the center of campus and is nestled between many of the main campus buildings, making it one of the most unique locations in college football. During the week, when not in use by the department of athletics, the stadium is open to the campus community. It is used for intramural games and the stands are often used by students studying or taking advantage of campus wireless access. Midnight football on Nippert is a tradition for UC students.

- Lindner Center for Athletics: Completed in 2007 as the centerpiece of 'Varsity Village', the Lindner Center is the operational hub for the football program. It has completely up to date athletic training and support facilities including one of the most complete weight rooms in the nation, technologically advanced meeting space and state of the art locker rooms. It is connected to the north end of Nippert Stadium, and its upper floors curve out into the stadium. It has a distinctive kidney bean shape and triangular windows as well as bright red staircase in its red, black and white atrium. It was designed by Bernard Tschumi and is considered part of the significant architecture that has been completed on campus since the mid 1990s.

- Jefferson Avenue Sports Complex: In December 2009, the University broke ground on the newest addition to UC's football facilities. The Jefferson Avenue Sports Complex will have one full sized field, that can be covered by an air inflated bubble when the weather is poor, and a second 70 yard field. The complex will resolve a lack of dedicated practice space for the football team, who currently use Nippert stadium for their practices. It will serve the entire UC community as well as being the home for UC women's Lacrosse.

The Cincinnati Bearcats are a college football team that competes in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision and the Big East Conference. The Bearcat football program is one of the nation’s oldest having fielded football a team as early as 1885. In 1888, Cincinnati played Miami University in the first intercollegiate football game held within the state of Ohio. That began a rivalry which today ranks as the eighth-oldest and 11th-longest running in NCAA Division I college football. [2]

Sid Gillman, a member of the College and National Football League hall of fame shrines, was the architect of one of the top eras of Cincinnati football history. He directed the Bearcats to three conference titles and a pair of bowl game appearances during his six seasons (1949-54) before leaving for the professional ranks. Cincinnati, with Gillman developing the passing offenses which would make him successful in the pro ranks, became known for its aerial attack in the early 1950’s. [3]

In 1968, the Bearcats were the nation’s top passing team. Quarterback Greg Cook was the NCAA’s total offense leader with receiver/kicker Jim O’Brien the national scoring champ. A year later, Cook earned Rookie of the Year honors as a Cincinnati Bengal. Two years later, O’Brien kicked the game-winning field goal for the Baltimore Colts in the Super Bowl. [4]

With more than 90 players advancing into the professional ranks, 35 earning All-American honors, and 12 garnering Verizon Academic All-America recognition, Cincinnati football clearly has a history of accomplishments, both on and off the gridiron. [5]
