    Cincinnati will play defending national champion Florida in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 in the Louisiana Superdome.
     
    “We’ve fought all year to get where we are,” Cincinnati coach Brian Kelly said. “To have the chance to represent the University of Cincinnati in a game like the Sugar Bowl that has such great history against an outstanding opponent in Florida is a real honor for our football team. We look forward to a great game in New Orleans on Jan. 1.”
     
    The question is: Who will coach the Bearcats in that game?
     
    Kelly told ESPN.com that he would “entertain” meeting with Notre Dame officials this week to discuss that school’s coaching opening.
