Cotton Bowl Watch Parties

Friday, Dec. 31
Kick Off: 3:30 p.m. ET

After finishing the historic 2021 season with a 13-0 record (the nation’s only undefeated team) and a #4 ranking, the Bearcats are heading to the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic! They will take on the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Friday, Dec. 31. Unable to make the trip? The next nest thing is cheering on the Bearcats with fellow alumni and fans at one of our national network watch parties as we unite across the country.

Feel free to arrive early to get a good seat. And be sure to wear your Bearcats gear!

We ask that you RSVP so we know how many Bearcats to expect. Space is limited at most venues so be sure to register soon.
