2011 Liberty Bowl: Cincinnati Vs. Vanderbilt

Co-Big East Champions, the 9-3 Cincinnati Bearcats play the 6-6 Vanderbilt Commodores in the Liberty Bowl today. The Bearcats hope to get quarterback Zach Collaros back for today's game, after missing the last three games with a broken ankle. Munchie Legaux started the last three games for Collaros, throwing five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Vanderbilt running back Zac Stacey, who broke Vandy's single season rushing record this season with 1,136, will look to continue his recent success against a Cincy defense who only allows 92.6 rushing yards per game.

The Big East Conference is 1-1 thus far in bowl games this season. Rutgers defeated Iowa State in the Pinstripe Bowl on Friday, but Louisville lost to North Carolina State in the Belk Bowl.
