Cincinnati fan(s) write UC in snow at the Horseshoe

In the dead of winter, a Cincinnati fan is trying to heat up an in-state rivalry.

This is certainly no script Ohio as spelled out in the snowy Horseshoe is "UC."

Just who got into the stadium and is responsible for it is a mystery but here’s the photographic evidence.

While the rivalry between the two schools is far from monumental, Cincinnati has been on the losing end more often than not, 2-12 all-time against the Buckeyes.

Their last meeting was in 2006 but Cincinnati’s last football win over Ohio State came in 1897.

The Bearcats get a shot to change that this season as the two face off on Sept. 27 in Columbus.
