It's ring season, and Cincinnati is one of the latest teams to show off its new rings.

Courtesy of broadcaster Tom Gelehrter, here are three looks at Cincinnati's co-Big East championship rings (there was a four-way tie) in the 125th year of the school's football program. The Bearcats beat Duke in the Belk Bowl, and I imagine former coach Butch Jones will get one of these.
