And they're reporting that its scientists got more interest on the university's online portal than its football team, which finished 8th in the national gridiron polls. The Bearcats' trip to the Sugar Bowl this month ranked fourth on the click list. That was topped by interest in the school's design programs in architecture,industrial and interior design.
