Cincinnati feels it belongs in the College Football Playoff.

The Bearcats are the lone undefeated team in the field, and Luke Fickell wants a national championship. As champions of the American Athletic Conference, Cincinnati is highly confident.

The team will wear black for Friday’s CFP Semifinal Game versus Alabama at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Avery Johnson, a former Bearcat, is declaring a victory for his Alma mater.

He hails from South Florida, but Johnson initially chose Louisiana State University for school.

He transferred to Cincinnati in the summer of 2015.

After sitting out, he played in 10 games for the Bearcats in 2016 — totaling 123 receiving yards on eight catches. Johnson is now a coach of Breakaway Speed Training in Florida. Cincinnati has a difficult task ahead, but Johnson sees his school taking down the Tide.
