CINCINNATI (AP) - The University of Kentucky will cross the Ohio
River to play Miami University this fall, a prelude to a recruiting
battle that both coaches relish.
Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says there's a lot of high school
football talent in the Cincinnati area, one of the reasons why the
Wildcats are looking forward to the Sept. 5 game against the
RedHawks in Paul Brown Stadium.
Brooks says as the northernmost school in the Southeastern
Conference, Kentucky has to do a better job of recruiting
Cincinnati because it's so close.
Miami coach Mike Haywood says he also hopes the game will raise
awareness about the RedHawks with possible recruits on both sides
of the river.
The two coaches spoke at news conference today about the game,
which is being dubbed the "Rumble at the River."
