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

Jones tied a team record with seven touchdowns in the season opener but he struggled to find as much success throughout the four-game losing streak.

"“We’re having to drive the length of the field and it’s difficult to score in those situations. There’s great football being played in the Big 12 and teams must execute at a high level. We’re putting our defense in a bad spot with the interception and kick returns that Iowa State almost took all the way back. We can’t keep putting our defense in those positions.”"
