Three out of the four predictions that we're featuring here have Cincinnati cleanly in, while Andy Glockner at SI.com has the Bearcats as a 12. A quick check of the Bracket Matrix shows them as a nine when all 87 brackets are averaged together. To be fair, the Matrix hasn't been updated since last night, and there's a lot of projections on there from before UC's most recent loss, too. How long are they going to stay in? Can they stay in?

On to the predictions!
