Cincinnati Football: Bearcats preview matchup against Miami in midweek press conference

Satterfield reflected on the win at Pittsburgh and previewed the matchup against Miami during a recent press conference via Cincinnati Athletics.

"“It was a great win for us and our program to go on the road and beat a quality ACC team. We had a great start to the game, offensively and defensively. Right from beginning to the end of the first half. It was a big win and we’re excited about it but ready to move onto Miami this week. We know it’s a rivalry game and what’s at stake with it. We know we’re going to get their best shot. They’re going to come here and play as hard as possible. You have to be ready for everything. Our defensive line played really outstanding last week but we’re going to need that again this week to get the quarterback off his spot and make him move.”"
