Kelly faces familiar foe in International Bowl

Jan 6, 2007 - 2:35 PM Western Michigan (8-4) at Cincinnati (7-5) January 6 International Bowl 12:00 pm EST

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Brian Kelly is in the rare position of facing Western Michigan twice this season - with two different teams, no less.

Kelly will make his Cincinnati coaching debut when the Bearcats take on the Broncos in the inaugural International Bowl.

Kelly guided Central Michigan to the Mid-American Conference title, beating Western Michigan, 31-7, on November 10. On December 4, he accepted the open position with the Bearcats, who lost coach Mark Dantonio to Michigan State.

Cincinnati went 7-5 under Dantonio, including 4-3 to finish in a tie for fourth place in the Big East Conference.

The Bearcats will be competing in their fifth bowl in seven seasons. In their last postseason appearance, they defeated Marshall, 32-14, in the 2004 Fort Worth Bowl.

Western Michigan was 8-4 in the regular season, including 6-2 in the MAC to finish second in the West Division.

Cincinnati has won both previous meetings, but the teams have not met since 1950.
