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.

The schools have met three times in previous years including the Bearcats earning a win at Oklahoma State in 1959 before hosting the Cowboys in 1983.

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

A stellar performance from the defense could keep the game within reach as defensive linemen Jowon Briggs and Dontay Corleone attempt to limit Gordon.

During a recent press conference, Satterfield broke down the five-game losing skid and the game plan against Oklahoma State via Cincinnati Athletics.

"“A lot of the teams we’ve played so far have not run as consistently as good as Oklahoma State has. The good news is our guys up front have done a good job in the past but this will be our biggest test to be able to stop the run. We’re looking forward to Oklahoma State.”"
