Maybe, but both are also major UA schools. This is great news.

Some other big UA schools that would make some sense....
Utah
Cal
Wisconsin (heavily recruit Ohio)
South Carolina (Frank Martin)

God, a Cincinnati-Wisconsin game would UGLY.

Given that a lot people in Cincinnati and Wisconsin share Germanic heritage, I always thought the two schools should play more frequently in all sports. Quite a few Wisky fans made the trip back in 1999 when we played in football-- IIRC that game was played during Oktoberfest weekend so a lot of them found there way down there.

Agree. I hope, by now, UC is well-versed in such contingencies.

I like it! Badger fans bring the cheese from Wisconsin and we'll supply the pretzels and craft beers from OTR. It does have the makings of an interesting tie-in with Octoberfest. That was an amazing win against Wisconsin in a half-filled Nippert. Imagine the energy playing UW now in a sold out and rocking Nippert. Imagine is probably the right word too, unfortunately.

Why not? We got Nebraska on the schedule now... Why couldn't we get Wisky?

That's a big get...and no doubt will be a National TV Game to also help show off the new arena (odds are the game will take place in Nov/Dec).

I'm old and memories dim over time, but didn't UC open Pauley Pavilion with UCLA back in 1965?

No. The Cinci vs UCLA game on Dec 18th game was actually played at the LA Sports Arena as part of the LA Classic. Cinci won 82-76.

Some interesting notes of the first ever game at Pauley Pavilion:

(Remember, Freshmen were not eligible to play back then as all had to be redshirted for a season).

The first game ever played in Pauley Pavilion was on November 27, 1965. It featured the freshmen team, led by Big Lew Alcindor, against the UCLA varsity squad, the two-time defending champions and pre-season No. 1 team. The freshmen, led by Alcindor's 31 points and 21 rebounds, defeated the varsity team 75-60, heralding great things to come

First visiting team was Ohio State and UCLA trounced them.

I told you my memories had dimmed. Didn't UCLA play its home games at LA Sports Arena before Pauley opened?

Yes they did.

We had an interesting December schedule that year. In a two week period we played Colorado, Southern Cal, UCLA on the road trip and then came home to the Armory Fieldhouse to play Wisconsin, Utah and Wake Forest. Not many games against directional schools in that era.

Maybe a few games but most of their games thru 1964-1965 took place at their 2,400 seat Men's Gym.
