Bonagura's most intriguing matchup: If Cincinnati does become the first Group of 5 team to reach the playoff, it will be a fascinating case study, regardless of whom the Bearcats play. Their performance will inevitably be used -- probably unfairly -- in the future to assess how top Group of 5 teams will fare against top Power 5 teams.
