Update (7:00 PM) –
West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was honored by one of his former teams during their football game. Cincinnati celebrated the 1992 Final Four and 1993 Elite Eight teams coached by Huggins.
Glad to see Cincinnati recognize Bob Huggins, something that they should do for his Basketball HOF induction too. Obviously his heart and affiliation is now with West Virginia, which he hilariously makes clear with a WV pullover, but he put Cincinnati athletics on the map. https://t.co/ns3ZfUoBu4
