As the program prepares to return to action today, the Cincinnati Bearcats recently looked ahead to the homecoming matchup in a press conference!

Cincinnati head coach Scott Satterfield, quarterback Emory Jones and linebacker Dorian Jones previewed the Big 12 battle against the Iowa State Cyclones.

Jones is coming off an impressive performance with 350 total yards and three touchdowns but it wasn’t enough to secure a win against the BYU Cougars.

Satterfield’s team must get a quality performance from the offense and shut down the Cyclones from creating explosive plays on a consistent basis.

During the midweek press conference, Satterfield discussed the game plan against Iowa State and reacted to the recent skid per Cincinnati Athletics.

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.

"“You look every week and see how even this league is and how many teams win. It shows you have to make least number of mistakes. Obviously if you take care of the ball, you have a chance to win. You go back to our last game and the same was true. We muffed a punt and had a pick six, they didn’t have any turnovers. It comes down to taking care of the ball and creating those turnovers defensively. I think that’s a huge thing we have to do better and we tried to work on those this past week.”"
