After suffering a fifth consecutive loss on Saturday, Cincinnati Bearcats head coach Scott Satterfield spoke during the postgame press conference.

It appeared Baylor would pull away after going up by double digits in the second quarter but the Bearcats fought back and had a chance to take a late lead.

One of the most consequential plays occurred in the first half as Cincinnati wide receiver Braden Smith fumbled a kick off and Baylor returned it for a score.

The Bearcats return to action against the Oklahoma State Cowboys next weekend with hopes of getting in the win column for the first time in over a month.

Cincinnati running back Corey Kiner was able to post a game-high 129 rushing yards, and receiver Xzavier Henderson racked up 82 yards and two touchdowns.

Following an impressive start to the regular season, the Bearcats continue to search for their first ever Big 12 win after experiencing a fifth loss in a row.

The final possession came to an end as Cincinnati quarterback Emory Jones failed to connect with tight end Chamon Metayer on fourth down near midfield.

With an opportunity to cut into the deficit heading into halftime, Myles Montgomery showed off his elite elusiveness with a 38-yard touchdown run.

During the postgame press conference on Saturday, Satterfield discussed the Bearcats running backs and the loss against Baylor via Cincinnati Athletics.

The Bearcats struggled to find an offensive groove until both running backs started to create explosive plays and that eventually opened up the pass attack.

"“Corey and Myles ran very hard. They did some great things in the running game and guys up front blocked well today. One of the big plays was on third down when Myles broke a tackle and hit the sideline and scored a touchdown. Very frustrated and disappointed. This is not what Cincinnati football is all about and this is not what we’re going to be about. We’re going to play better football. This one was there for us to go get and we didn’t do it, and that starts here with me. There were some calls we could have done different. We made some mistakes.”"
