CINCINNATI -- The University of Cincinnati is preparing for a primetime football game.

The Bearcats will be in the national spotlight as they host the Houston Cougars, a top-10-ranked team.

It's the only college game on the national schedule tonight.

It's also the first time since '07 that a top-10 team has visited Nippert Stadium.

UC coach Tommy Tuberville said he's not phased.

"Our guys know a lot more about this," he said. "It's a team in our conference."

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. The game will be aired on ESPN.
