FROM CINCINNATI BENGALS PUBLIC RELATIONS
BENGALS FOLLOW THROUGH
WITH DONATION TO UC
The Bengals today delivered a check to the University of Cincinnati for $172,617.17, following through on their commitment to make a donation back to UC after hosting the 2014 UC football season at Paul Brown Stadium.
UC played its entire 2014 home schedule at PBS, due to renovations at Nippert Stadium, its on-campus facility. The work at Nippert is on schedule to allow the Bearcat football program to move back to campus for the 2015 season.
"We can't thank the Bengals enough for their partnership and help this past season," UC Director of Athletics Mike Bohn said. "The Brown family runs a first-class organization, and we appreciated the opportunity to play inside a state-of-the-art NFL facility. We look forward to partnering with the Bengals on future community and football opportunities."
Bengals Executive Vice-President Katie Blackburn said:
"We think the season went well, and we enjoyed having UC play here. More importantly, the relationship between the Bengals and UC football has grown closer, and that is a good thing for both organizations."
UC posted a 5-1 record while playing at PBS in 2014, raising its all-time record at PBS to 6-3.
