CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

University of Cincinnati President Dr. Santa Ono could soon be bald if the men's basketball team wins on Saturday.

Ono pledged to have his head shaved if the basketball or football team won 10 games in a row.

The basketball Bearcats are currently 9-0 and play Marshall on Saturday, Dec. 15 in Charleston.

Director of Athletics Whit Babcock and student body president Lane Hart have also agreed to go bald.

Ono said via Twitter that the head shaving could take place as soon as UC's home game on Jan. 7.

The pledge follows the footsteps of Reds Broadcaster Marty Brennaman, who promised to shave his head if the Reds won ten games in a row, which they did.
