There are plenty of concerns as the Bearcats failed to take care of business behind an underwhelming showing on both sides of the ball last weekend.

Satterfield discussed the recent loss to Miami and looked ahead to the matchup with Oklahoma in a midweek press conference per Cincinnati Athletics.

"“Whatever happened this past weekend, that doesn’t change the fact that we’re opening Big 12 play with Oklahoma. We know what kind of team they are. Our guys will go out there and try to play the very best game they can and try to go get a win. That’s what we’ll do this week. It just so happens to be one of the best teams in the Big 12. It’s a huge moment and it’s going to be awesome for our fans, student athletes and all of us to have the first Big 12 game at Nippert. It’s a tremendous honor and privilege for our guys. We’ll have great preparation and will go out and play a great game. We have to go out there, play our best ball and get a win.”"
