Cincinnati gets late-night start to '10

Cincinnati fans, make sure you're well rested during the day if you want to watch the Bearcats' 2010 opener.

Cincinnati's season lid-lifter at Fresno State on Sept. 4 will be televised by ESPN2, and the kickoff is set for 10:30 p.m. ET. That's late, but not as late as the Bearcats' season finale in 2008 at Hawaii, which went well in the wee hours of the morning.

It's the second ever matchup for the two teams. Cincinnati won 28-20 at Nippert Stadium on Sept. 26 of last season.
