Bearcats will be rooting for Cornhuskers
By ESPN.com staff
Shortly after a dramatic 45-44 comeback victory over Pittsburgh, Cincinnati coach Brian Kelly was already looking forward to tonight's Big 12 championship game.
Considering that if Nebraska upsets Texas tonight, the Bearcats will have a better shot at making the BCS title game, Kelly is already making his plans.
"I love Mack Brown," Kelly told ABC-TV after the game. "But we'll be rooting pretty hard for Nebraska. Go Nebraska. Go Cornhuskers."
Kelly's one-night interest in the Big 12 will be matched only by TCU and Coach Gary Patterson's similar rooting interests for Nebraska.
