Following a much-needed bye week, the Cincinnati Bearcats are set to return to action against Big 12 opponent the Iowa State Cyclones this weekend!

Players to keep an eye on include Cincinnati senior quarterback Emory Jones, linebacker Dorian Jones, running back Corey Kiner and safety Bryon Threats.

The Bearcats opened as 4.5-point favorites against Iowa State with the over/under currently projected at 47.5 points according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

With a chance to snap a three-game losing streak, Cincinnati needs to find an offensive rhythm early and limit Iowa State’s balanced offensive attack.
