Despite a four-game losing streak, the Cincinnati Bearcats are projected to pick up a much-needed win over the Baylor Bears on Saturday afternoon!

Following an impressive start to the regular season, the Bearcats are still searching for their first Big 12 win after enduring a fourth straight loss last week.

It will be key for Bryan Brown’s defense to contain Baylor’s dynamic offense that is led by quarterback Blake Shapen and running back Richard Reese.

Scott Satterfield’s team must get a quality showing from the offense and limit the Bears from being able to create game-changing plays on a consistent basis.

During a weekly press conference, Satterfield broke down the Bearcats state of mind and looked ahead to the game against Baylor per Cincinnati Athletics.

The new Big 12 opponents are scheduled to face off for the first time in school history with kick off set for Saturday afternoon at Nippert Stadium on ESPN+.

"“We have to learn from the past, we have to grow from this. I think anytime anybody goes through something difficult, it’s where you see the most growth. Our guys have to realize how we got to this point. It’s through energy every day and finding ways to get better. We have to utilize this and that’s what I told our coaches. We’re halfway through the season and there’s still a lot of ball left to be played. We’ve done a lot of great things. I have confidence that we’re able to compete at this level. We know that we have to be able to make plays. We’re not good enough to make those mistakes and win.”"
