It will be key for Bryan Brown’s defense to contain Oklahoma State’s offense that is led by quarterback Alan Bowman and star running back Ollie Gordon II.

Scott Satterfield’s team must get a quality showing from the offense and slow down the Cowboys from creating explosive plays on a consistent basis.

With a chance to snap the five-game losing streak, Cincinnati needs to find an offensive rhythm early and keep Oklahoma State’s offense under wraps.

During a weekly press conference, Satterfield broke down the recent skid and discussed the game plan against Oklahoma State per Cincinnati Athletics.

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

"“We have to continue to work and get better. When you think about jumping from the AAC to the Big 12, you knew there was going to be some transition parts. But the bad thing about it is the fact that there’s at least three of these games that we should have won, and we shot ourselves in the foot. We’re looking forward to Oklahoma State. They have a lot of confidence and are rolling right now. I’ve never been there but have heard it’s a loud environment so we have to prepare for that during this week.”"
