they talk about the games that sauce plays in practice, how much he loves to have fun. doesn't surprise me if he is trying to bait ahlers into throwing his way. >> jason: yeah. he is always in control over in that island. >> andre: if he's on the field, he's healthy enough to go. >> jason: ahlers, meets sanders. he got blind sided. ball on the ground. and cincinnati will have it one way or another. jabari taylor got in there and the ball ends up with marquise brown. and holton ahlers was under siege that time. >> andre: i don't know if there's two better defensive linemen that i've seen this year, that are better than brooks and jabari taylor. both guys have had a tremendous ball game here, right in front of us. >> jason: when holton ahlers was born, it was november 10th,
4:02 pm
1999. the first ecu game he was on the planet for, was an ecu win over cincinnati, 48-34. this is a different cincinnati team that that young man is facing tonight, as quarterback for east carolina. and the bearcats have shown so much ability to be resilient in this game, especially this defense. >> andre: they will turn around and give it to the car here to run this thing out, jerome ford. let him drive it for a little while. >> jason: not much of a chance for jerome ford. he is quite the successful touchdownmaker for cincinnati. it will be interesting to see cincinnati and houston for that american conference championship game. two very strong defenses. we look at today's hardest
4:03 pm
working player. brought to you by duluth trading company. cincinnati and alec pierce. >> andre: made a tough, tough touchdown catch for his first touchdown. he is so dependable. you can go for him on muddy downs, third down situations. and he always seems to come through for this offense. >> andre: his dad played football at northwestern. his mom was a volleyball player at northwestern. wildcat alumni. alec played basketball, football, one of those guys that you can put anywhere. >> andre: and volleyball scholarships, as well. i was on the field.

he is well put together. and i asked coach dem ro, is heg looks by the scouts? oh, yeah. >> jason: ford has a first down at the 27 for cincinnati. the cincinnati ends up beating houston next week in the american conference championship, what percentage would you put on the bearcats to make the college football playoffs? >> andre: i have to see it to believe it. one of those. i don't care what percentage, the fbi and everybody else comes up with, i have to see it. i have just been in disbelief of what comes out of that room. i have to see it to believe it. i believe that cincinnati has done everything they need to do to get there. just need to see it happen. >> jason: here's another run for cincinnati. this should be worth a couple style points, into the 2 yard line. ryan montgomery. first and goal for the bearcats.
4:05 pm
you said fpi. you wouldn't believe it if the fbi -- >> jaso >> andre: they need to investigate it. the fpi. >> jason: this bearcats team has done everything that was asked of them. they went to notre dame, won a huge game in south bend. won that game on the road. they were undefeated in the regular season last year. first time they finish undefeated in the a regular season, since 2009. this is a touchdown for montgomery. cincinnati in one more time. the last 12-0 season, was brian kelly's final year, for some symmetry for you. >> andre: the ability to move bodies. they have a full complement of running backs.
4:06 pm
charles mcclellan, who hasn't carried the ball tonight. he is another, along with montgomery, that can sub in for jerome ford. they are equipped at that position. tight end, wide receiver, and certainly at quarterback. they get a match-up next week against another top 25 team, in the houston cougars. so, it will be a good one. >> jason: 35-13, your score. hey, on espn-plus, sign up at espnplus.com espnplus.com/aac. monmouth at cincinnati, the bearcats, and wes miller with a 20-point win over illinois. they fell to arkansas for their first loss the other day. a big win against the illini. >> andre: attractive to the big 12, cincinnati, the football program rolling. now, the basketball program. they've always been tough. back to the days of nix van

4:09 pm
play quarterback for ecu. it will be a first down for east carolina. this is a team that is trending up, after the coaching change from scotty montgomery. mcneill was let go before him. and mike houston has done a good job rebuilding here. >> andre: the winning streak, the four-game winning streak. that will come to an end. it's against one of the better teams in the country in number four, cincinnati. a tough one even being at home. there was some good points in this game for east carolina. some things on which to build on. >> jason: what i like about cincinnati, and tell me if you think i'm on-base, but there's some games where the defense has to win the game. and other games where smu, where the offense just blew the doors off opponents. >> andre: they can get it done in a variety of ways. and special teams will take over, as they did tonight, with a couple of blocks. one block for field goal for a touchdown. it's a complete win. offensively, over 450 yards.
4:10 pm
through for 300-plus. holding ecu for 1 poi3 points. four sacks and interception. a blocked punt, a blocked field goal and touchdown. they can get it done across the board, if you're looking for a team that needs to pass your eye test. this is one. >> jason: yeah. they've done everything that is asked of them. if they beat houston next week and not in the college football playoff, i would call it a travesty. >> andre: just call me. >> jason: i know what you're going to say. >> andre: well, call me and hear it again. >> jason: you don't think it's going to happen until it happens. >> andre: yes. >> jason: it never happened. >> andre: partly, that's a fault in my personality. and the other is the realist that you have -- when it comes to the playoff, i have devogot see it from a group five team to believe it. >> jason: that's fair. totally fair. i'm an eternal optimist.
4:11 pm
>> andre: if it happens, i'm calling you. >> jason: i'll wait by my phone. fourth down and one, for east carolina. a couple more plays left in this ball game. ecu will head to its first bowl game since 2014. but a huge game for cincinnati next week. what's your early handicapping on how cincinnati/houston goes? >> andre: you see -- all the way down the line, how evenly matched this is. and we know houston can obviously play defense. cincinnati can't turn the ball over the way they did tonight or they will find themselves playing catchup to houston. that's going to be a tough, tough football game. but with it being in cincinnati, you favor the bearcats. they turn it over, houston comes after them, they can score with anybody. they can run the football, with mccaskill healthy. he's a dimension at running back for houston they didn't have earlier in the season. it will be a tough one for cincinnati. >> jason: cincinnati will go into that 12-0.
4:12 pm
luke fickell, we asked him a number of times, are you enjoying it? he said i can enjoy it more. he will enjoy a 12-0 regular season for cincinnati. number four wins again. the bearcats douse their coach. he will be freezing on the bus. for paul carcaterra, andre ware, for our beautiful crew, i'm jason benetti. so long from greenville, north carolina. cincinnati wins.

4:32 pm
it's the very last day of a yearlong project called oh, oceans melting greenland 18. >> it's been six years since we've been flying around greenland and it's dominated my life during that time. we're trying to measure out the oceans are changing and how the ice here is changing in response to the oceans. so oceans melting greenland is about how the oceans are eating away at the ice here. david: thanks to josh's six years of hard work we now noa lot more about how our polar isles caps are meting. the mission takes place on a beautiful world war ii era plane that's loaded with state of the art research equipment. i buckle in and we go to work. they've studied over 200 glaciers and today i get to see one up close. as we approach our target zone
4:33 pm
we're given an opportunity to absorb the beauty of the moment. it's a view so few are privileged toiseach. i'm first amazed at the ice floes. freshly broken off icebergs working to the open sea. the pilot invites us into the cock punishment as we approach and there it is. it's remarkable. you're looking at the face of a majestic glitchier that is several him feet all the and it's right here where this frozen behe moth metes the watch that is vitali important to our climate crisis. from the plane we're going to be dropping probes into the water. >> these probes that we push out of the plane, they actually fall through the water and measure the temperature not just at the surface but at each level down to the sea floor. david: through precision flying by the pilot and timing from the crew, i'm allowed to take part
4:34 pm
in actually doing the launch. i'm standing at the ready bill the tube and on their mark, i let it go. >> drop, drop, drop. david: it hits the water and slowly sinks, sending in data immediately. they record every didn't. >> we're getting the depth right there. 16 meters. david: this is something they've done hundreds of times all over greenland. it's within those numbers that we find the truth. >> climate change is inescapable and affects everyone around the world. we're learning more about it from scientists all the time. it's one of the reasons we're here, to understand it better. david: back on the ground i talk with dr. john moore of the state department. he flew all the way here on this last day to witness what's happening and learn as much as possible. >> it was a tremendous opportunity to see with my own eyes the nature of the situation here in greenland, including the melt of the ice-cap.
4:35 pm
david: weeks later i meet with willis at g.p.l. in pasadena after he's studied his findings. as expected, the news isn't good but now they're -- there's clarity. >> it's revolutionized our understanding of how the isles melt is going to melt. before we thought it was warming from above. david: remember those probes we sent out? they've taught us that it's not the airplane. it's the water. the glaciers are meting from underneath. >> the oceans are playing a huge role in eating away that ice. >> the oceans, because they store over 90% of the heat that we trap with the greenhouse gases, they're warming and that warmer water is going to have a bigger and bigger impact on the glaciers. david: what happens at greenland lands at our doorstep. our oceans are rising, far faster than we ever expected.
4:36 pm
that meeks high tides and storm surges willen exponentially worse. prompt loss, beach erosion but there's far more to it than that. >> the oceans are controlling our climate and the airplane is reacting to what the oceans do. david: rising oceans are changing our weather patterns. droughts, hurricanes. blizzards. when you first heard about climate change 10, 20, maybe 30 years ago and thought there was time, there's not. the more we learn, the more we realize we were wrong. david owno, abc 7 news. reggie: obviously that's alarming, on monday, we're going to look at solutions. we take you to the world's first carbon capture plan. is this the future? >> shop or do nothing. >> shop or do nothing. and the worst times to hit your heart is at the heart of everything you do. and if you have heart failure,
4:37 pm
entrust your heart to entresto. it's the number one heart failure brand prescribed by cardiologists. entresto was proven superior at helping people stay alive and out of the hospital. heart failure can change the structure of your heart, so it may not work as well. entresto helps improve your heart's ability to pump blood to the body. and with a healthier heart, there's no telling where life may take you. don't take entresto if pregnant; it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren, or if you've had angioedema with an ace or arb. the most serious side effects are angioedema, low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high blood potassium. ask your doctor about entresto for heart failure. entrust your heart to entresto.

>> time now for spencer and chris joining us today. holiday shopping season is now underway. finding the right gift can be very stressful and then many people end up overspending and getting themselves into dealt. a study a few years ago found 60% of those surveyed sufferedded from holiday stress. this year, toss in some supply shortages. john, you -- i don't know, you
4:40 pm
guys getting stressed out over the holiday, chris? >> chris: venmo is a great thing. just go straight to the source. so far i'm not stressed but you want to put some thought into it. but venmo or something along those lines is the easy way to do it. >> spencer? spencer: i began shopping online probably a month ago and the little bit of this-person shopping my wife and i have done we also did early. i'm not finding much stress at the moment. the most stressful part for me is finding the right gift for each other. >> reggie? >> reggie: now i'm stressed? [laughter] i wasn't until now, really. i guess i just figure that -- i don't plan very much ahead so when the spirit moves me, i guess, which could happen at any moment. then i'll get into it. ama, you actually have a child to look out for so what are you
4:41 pm
doing? ama: it's funny because everyone is asking what should we get he were? so i haven't really thought about what we were getting her but we're going to take her to target to maybe buy some toys to do the nate to toys are to the and maybe get her in the center of helping others. reggie: i like that. that's very sweet. a good way to start. hopefully a lifelong philanthropy. >> or you could do this -- participate in buy nothing day. you don't do a thing. you just sit down and watch others shop. this started a while ago and now folks are jumping on this bandwagon. the whole deal is to deemphasize consumerism in a very con sucher-driven culture. of course, at this point, our economy depends on it. this is a tough one because we
4:42 pm
want to support our local businesses, especially, but i guess i can understand the thinking about behinds this, right? ama, you were just talking about donating to others. our friend ginger at "g.m.a.," we've been talking about this because she decided she's really paring down all her gift giving. for aller kids it's about one or two gift. and yes, that's what we thought about, you don't need more toys. let's go to kids less. we don't go crazy with presents in our family. spencer: for me, black friday has always been buy nothing day because i don't want to be out there with everyone else. ama: next, we have holiday pet peeves so let's talk about holiday traffic. let's take a live look outside. this is 0.
4:43 pm
plenty of cars out there. a lot of people heading to the mall. what's a driver to do this holiday weekend? if you need to get somewhere, best to drive in the morning. predicted the worst traffic on saturday will be from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. and on sunday, the rush starts at 1:00 p.m. as people return from their holiday trips. obviously none of us are returning from our holiday trips. but nobody likes traffic, right, consider is? chris: i used to say that but when we had the pandemic and there was no traffic, and now we're getting back to normal -- i could see a little less but small businesses, for sure, let's donate to those guys. ama: suspenseer? chris: i feel -- spencer: i feel the same way. it was nice to have things slow down during the shutdown but it's nice to see people out,
4:44 pm
going to restaurants and interacting. this time, especially as we approach the holidays, it feels good to see some normalcy. reggie: i'm so happy to be sitting down. it's been such a beautiful weekend. i was taking a run before i got here and thinking there's nowhere else i would rather be, not driving anywhere, not flying anywhere. for a lot of you, this weekend is the time to start decorating, putting christmas lights up. the tree and the house. check out this house in germany that includes more than 70,000 lights. the own earn says it started with a single string of lights and every year keeps getting bigger but homeowners supply them with sausages and muhammad wine. the great christmas flight premiering on abc 7.
