Cincinnati Football: Will the Bearcats be able to snap recent losing skid against Iowa State?
Cincinnati began the regular season with high hopes but a string of unexpected setbacks left the coaching staff searching for answers moving forward.
Jones tied a school record with seven touchdowns during the season opener but struggled to find as much success throughout the Bearcats losing skid.
The loss at BYU marked the first three-game losing streak for Cincinnati since former head coach Luke Fickell was in the midst of his first season in 2017.
With a renewed sense of motivation and purpose, the Bearcats will look to end to the surprising skid and get back in the win column against Iowa State!
