With a 5-0 record, the Cincinnati Bearcats earned the No. 21 spot in the debut of the BCS standings. However, on Saturday they'll face the Toledo Rockets, who have been on a run of their own with six straight wins after losing a season opener against the Arizona Wildcats.
Saturday's game is the first time of the season that the Bearcats will play in an opposing team's stadium though, as four of their first five games were at home and a 27-24 win over Virginia Tech was played at a neutral site.
The Cincinnati defense has allowed 72 combined points in five games, but will have the task of slowing a Toledo offense that has accumulated 177 points in their last four games. The Rockets have two receivers, Bernard Reedy and Alonzo Russell, that each rank among the top 20 in the nation in receiving yards.
However, the Bearcats offense hasn't had a problem scoring points either, racking up 101 in their last two games.
