There are plenty of compelling storylines to watch in the Spring Game tomorrow including a crowded quarterback battle, dominant defensive line, underrated running back room and more!

After starting spring practice nearly six weeks ago, Scott Satterfield’s team is set to show off their progress in the annual intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday afternoon at Nippert Stadium.

Even though it’s unclear which quarterback will emerge as the favorite heading into fall camp, the likely option seems to be Arizona State transfer Emory Jones or returning starter Ben Bryant.

It will be interesting to see how the quarterbacks perform in front of a full crowd as Bryant and Jones compete alongside Evan Prater, Brady Lichtenberg, Brady Drogosh and Jacob Hoying.

Despite losing leading rusher Charles McClelland, the ground game should continue to be effective behind Corey Kiner, Myles Montgomery, Ryan Montgomery, Ethan Wright and others.

With the return of star defensive tackles Jowon Briggs and Dontay Corleone, plus defensive ends Malik Vann and Eric Phillips Jr, the Bearcats defensive line should be a physically-imposing unit.

Satterfield broke down expectations for the Spring Game, latest injury updates and the most intriguing storylines heading into next season in a press conference via Cincinnati Athletics.
