The Cincinnati Bearcats mens football team is currently in Charlotte, North Carolina preparing for the Belk Bowl agains the Tar Heels of The University of North Carolina. Now while we could do a break down or a preview, that isn’t happening yet, its only Wednesday instead lets look at what the Bearcats have been up to.
In the week leading up to bowl games they are generally always filled with some sort of off the field activities. The Cincinnati Bearcats are no strangers to off the field activities under the guidance of head coach Tommy Tuberville.
Before the Bearcats headed down to Charlotte Coach Tuberville called the boys in for a meeting to tell them they were going bowling for the day instead of practicing. Tuberville has made it a point to make sure his team stays loose.

Now that the Bearcats are in Charlotte practicing at the Charlotte Latin School they have engages in a few pre bowl activities. Having spent last Christmas in Charlotte as well the Bearcats are seasoned veterans at the lead up to the Belk Bowl. Last season the Bearcats went to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Nascar experience, they returned this season to once again experience Nascar. This year looked to be as much fun as last season.

Along with the Nascar trip the Bearcats also returned to the Belk Department store in Charlotte for the team shopping trip which is part of the Belk Bowl gift bag. Cincinnati players appeared to have a great time again this season decking themselves out in clothes head to toe.
