The dramatic West Virginia victory over South Florida on Thursday night may have taken some of the hype out of this game, but don't tell that to these two teams, as there is a lot on the line when Connecticut takes on Cincinnati. 

The Bearcats are a win away from their third Big East championship in four seasons, and while they would share the title with Louisville and West Virginia, they want nothing more than to be atop the heap once again. 

For the Huskies, a win will make them bowl eligible and allow them a few more weeks of practice and preparation to get better for next season. 

Turnovers will be the key to the game as Connecticut thrives on opponents' miscues and Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux is making only his third collegiate start. 

Whoever wins the turnover battle will likely come out on top in this one. 

There is a lot on the line at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati for the final Big East game of the season.
